During our 2017/18 On the Road season, we will still make every effort to provide the accessibility features that you expect from the Alliance Theatre. Details about what will be available at each venue and for each production can be found below.
All perfomances at select venues
Assisted Listening Devices
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) can help to isolate and amplify onstage dialogue and sound effects while reducing ambient noise to assist patrons with hearing loss. ALDs are available free of charge and work in any seat. Please see the House Manager at your performance for details.
ALDs will be offered at the following venues for all performances:
- Atlanta Symphony Hall (Candide)
- Atlanta History Center (Native Guard)
- Actor's Express (Sheltered)
- Conant Center for Performing Arts at Oglethorpe University (Shakespeare in Love, but not The Dancing Granny)

- Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (Crossing Delancey)
- Porter Sanford III Arts Center (The Jungle Book)

All venues in our 2017/18 season are equipped with wheelchair-accessible seating and parking. For more information about wheelchair acess and other services, please contact the box office at 404.733.5000.
Audio Described Performance
For patrons who are blind or have low vision, the Alliance Theatre offers Audio Description services for select performances. Audio description is the art of speaking pictorially. This enables patrons who are blind or with low vision to have access to theatrical performances. Through this service, patrons are provided with a wireless earpiece through which a trained descirber tells the listener about the sets, costumes, visual cues, and non-verbal onstage action that adds a layer of immersion for patrons with low vision. For more information on Audio Described performances or to purchase tickets to a described show, please contact the box office at 404.733.5000.
Sign Language & Shadow Interpretation
We provide two types of Sign Language Interpretation services for select performances. We offer standard Side Interpretation, where an interpreter signs along to the performance from a designated spot on the side of the stage. And for a more immersive experience for our younger audiences, we also offer Shadow Interpretation for our Family Series shows, where a full cast of interpreters shares the stage and signs, acts, and dances along with the actors. For interpreted shows, we offer a designated seating area with a clear view of the interpreters. For more information on Sign Interpreted performances, please contact the box office at 404.733.5000.
