As part of its ACCESS program Center Theatre Group offers special services for the deaf and hard of hearing communities for select performances presented at The Music Center’s Ahmanson Theatre and the Mark Taper Forum. This includes Audio Description for select performances in the Ahmanson Theatre, which provides you with carefully timed narration of onstage action that is broadcast via an inconspicuous FM transmitter and received via Assistive Listening Device headsets; these devices are available for free in the Ahmanson lobby. For specifically scheduled performances, the ACCESS program also presents pre-play discussions and sign language-interpreted performances for audience members who are deaf or have hearing loss. Both theatres use the Phonic Ear FM system, and we offer a variety of headsets free of charge in the theatre lobbies. American Sign Language-interpreted performances and open captioned performances may be available. Please check the Center Theatre Group website for more information. If you have a question about this service, please call (213) 628-2772.
We also offer Assistive Listening Devices such as Sennheiser Infrared System headsets free of charge for performances in The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Please ask a lobby attendant in these theatres to request this device.
