Assistive Listening System
The Assistive Listening System uses microphones throughout the stages, FM transmitters and hand-held receivers that enhance words spoken on stage by separating speech from the background noise. This system amplifies the actors and brings the sound directly into patrons' ears. The receivers are coupled with headphones, ear buds or a neck loop (for patrons using a hearing aid with a "T" switch) and may be borrowed from the Patron Services Desk on Level Four.
American Sign Language Interpretation, by certified interpreters, is scheduled for select performances at the Guthrie.
Standard backstage tours interpreted in American Sign Language by a Guthrie interpreter can be arranged, depending upon ticket availability. Please make any special needs known at the time of booking. Two weeks prior notice is required to arrange an interpreter.
Whether you just miss a single word or you have hearing loss too severe to benefit from assistive listening devices, Open Captioning can keep you from missing out. Select performances will be Open Captioned by c2 inc.
