Open Captioning
Trinity Repertory Company presents four open captioned performances throughout the season. Tickets are $25 for one performance, or as a subsciption for $100. The subscription includes all four performances and all Trinity Rep subscriber benefits such as discounts on additional full price tickets and discounted parking. Open Captioning is live text displayed simultaneous to the performance, provided by c2 captioning service. As opposed to closed captioning, open captions do not require the user to have any special equipment for viewing the text and are always “open” to anyone.
Assistive Listening Devices
Trinity Repertory Company offers an infrared system made by Listen Technologies. The units come in two types: stethoscope (with ear pieces attached to the unit) and lanyard (worn around the neck with a set of headphones). The theater also has loops that can be plugged into the lanyards. The loop will transmit the audio feed to your hearing aid.
Both the stethoscope and lanyard units have volume control, so you can dictate how loud or soft the audio feed transmits throughout the performance. It is also important to make sure that the unit is not blocked by anything (a coat, scarf, etc.) because it will prevent the infrared signal from getting through.
American Sign Language Interpretation
ASL interpretation is available during three performances throughout the season. All tickets available online with code ASL, by phone at (401) 351-4242 or in person at 201 Washington Street in Providence. Please be sure to specify you would like tickets for the ASL interpretation when purchasing.
For more information, please ask for the house manager at Trinity Rep on your next visit to the theater.
Support for Trinity Rep’s accessibility programs comes from the Ida Ballou Littlefield Memorial Fund, the Vigneron Memorial Fund, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee and the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts .
