University Theatre is proud to partner with Arts Access to offer Audio Described performances for both The Hollow and Something’s Afoot.

From Arts Access:

Audio Description is a narration service for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The audio describer provides an ongoing dialogue of visual events that are taking place on the stage.

Audio Description is commentary and narration that guides the listener through the presentation with concise, objective descriptions of scenes, settings, costumes, body language, and “sight gags,” all slipped in between portions of dialogue or songs. The patron using this service wears an ear piece so they can hear the describer explain the visual events taking place, providing a more robust experience to the listener.

If you would like to make use of this complimentary service, it will be offered at the following performances:

The Hollow: Friday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Something’s Afoot: Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available by clicking on the above show titles or by calling Ticket Central at 919.515.1100.
