Deaf and HoH Accessibility

The Fringe is very excited to get more involved with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. We are working to improve our accessibility and welcome any feedback!

Artist-selected d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing Friendly Shows were reviewed, and ASL Interpretation has been selected and chosen by Landon Krentz, Director of Artistic Sign Language.


If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and would like to volunteer with us, we have positions available for you! Please click here for more information on how to sign up. If you are an ASL Interpreter and would like to volunteer your skills to interpret for Deaf or Hard of Hearing volunteers, please contact us!

If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and require priority seating to view any performance, please let our Front of House volunteers know. The house opens 15 minutes before show time and you will be granted priority access to the venue.


The artists have self-reported whether they consider their shows “Deaf and Hard of Hearing Friendly,” which suggests their meaning and enjoyment does not depend on sound elements. For full show descriptions and tickets, click the show title.

These shows are largely non-verbal and may be suitable for patrons new to the English language.
