Available for All Performances

Closed Captioning

ACT offers the Figaro MobiTxt® Closed Captioning (CC) system for audience members who are deaf/Hard of Hearing (HH).

The Figaro system supports closed captioning on individual tablets attached to a “gooseneck” stand on the arm of the patron’s seat anywhere in the theatre. The captioning will be run manually by an operator at each performance so there will be no delay in the display.

Patrons wishing to utilize the CC system should purchase tickets as they normally would, then call or email the Box Office to reserve a tablet at boxoffice@acttheatre.org or 206.292.7676. Tablets may also be requested upon arrival at the theatre. This service is provided at no additional cost.

Audio/Telecoil Neckloop

ACT is equipped with the Williams Sound® Audio Equipment, which amplifies stage sounds with the aid of headsets.

Headsets are available free of charge in the lobby. And they are not only for people with hearing loss. Headsets can be helpful for anyone wanting a bit of extra help to catch every line.

The neck loop plugs into a receiver’s earphone jack to provide a magnetic signal that can be picked up by a hearing aid equipped with a telecoil (t-switch). It is worn like a lanyard. It is suitable for a person with moderate to severe hearing loss.

Wheelchair Accessible Seating

Wheelchair Accessible Seating is available for all shows. Tickets may be purchased by phone, in person, or the Select-Your-Own-Seat function on this website. Please note: in the event of sold-out performances, accessible and companion seating may be released for sale to the public one (1) hour prior to the beginning of each show.

Swing and Armless Arm Chairs

Swing arm chairs are available for patrons who wish to transfer from their wheelchair to a seat. ACT also provides armless chairs by request.

Large Format Programs

Available from any front-of-house team member.
