Audio Description

Audio Description is a form of audio-visual translation, using natural pauses to insert narrative that translates the visual image into an audible form. Patrons use headsets to hear the audio description.
A free tactile tour of key props and costumes will be offered 1 hour prior to the show in the theater. Reservations required. Braille and large print programs will also be available- please advise the box office when booking of your preference.

Information on Relaxed Performances for 2018 to be announced. Below is information from the 2017 season.

Ice Princess

PSF’s relaxed performance is made possible through an Audience (R)Evolution grant from Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American theatre, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. PSF is honored to receive this support and to work collectively with a cohort of six theatres in the Greater Philadelphia area to address accessibility and inclusivity needs in the tristate region.

TCG

The Lehigh Valley Arts Council has been instrumental to the establishment of all of Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s accessible performances and has provided support though their Arts & Access program, which was initially designed as a yearlong celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. PSF’s relaxed performance of The Ice Princess is supported by a Greater Inclusion Grant.
