Live theatre belongs to everyone.
Philadelphia Theatre Company is dedicated to its mission to serve all audiences, and to eliminate the barriers that keep individuals isolated from the arts and from their communities.
We are continuously seeking improvements to our physical and digital space, our programming, and pricing to best serve that mission. We are working on improving the virtual experience.

Audio Description and Pre-show Sensory Workshops
The following Wednesday matinee 1pm performances are crafted for for audience members who are blind or low vision. Guided by stage management and an artistic associate, guests are toured through the set of the production. During the performance, through wireless headsets, a trained audio describer fills in the details of action on the stage, which might otherwise have been visually missed. Reservations are required for Sensory Workshops, which start 90 minutes before the show.
When we can gather again, our schedule is typically:
Wednesday, curtain at 1pm
Workshop at 11:30am
For audience members who are hearing impaired a large LED captioning screen, positioned beside the stage, scrolls text of the dialogue/lyrics in tandem with the dialogue/lyrics of the performance.
The following Saturday 2pm matinee performances are crafted with Open Captioning.
