The Hundred And One Dalmatians Enhanced Access Performances Announced
As part of our ongoing commitment to making theatre accessible to everyone, we're delighted to announce that we have expanded our Captioning and Audio Described service to include every performance of our Christmas production The Hundred And One Dalmatians.
This decision means that the entire run of our Christmas show can now be enjoyed by audiences with visual or hearing impairments and on whichever date or time they choose to book.
During the run of the show, we'll gather audience feedback to learn if people felt their experience was enhanced and to find out if there are improvements to be made for the future. In the meantime, customers are encouraged to discuss any booking queries with members of our BOX Office team.
Our Audio Described Performances for The Hundred And One Dalmatians feature pre-recorded narrators describing the action on stage, interspersed between actors' dialogue. You will need to pre-book your headset through BoxOffice and then collect it at the venue for a returnable deposit.
Alternatively, you can access the audio description via a smart phone and headphones by downloading the MobileConnect app and logging on to the MobileConnect wi-fi network. Customers wishing to enjoy an Audio Described Performance should be in their seats 15 minutes before the performance begins in order to hear the full description of the set and costumes. This is also made available online before the show.
During a Captioned Performance, the actors' words appear as visible text on screens at the same time as they are spoken. For The Hundred And One Dalmatians there will be a single caption box placed at the centre of the set. The seats with the best view of the screen will be those near to the centre of rows. If in any doubt, please contact a member of our The BOX Office team on 0121 236 4455
