British Sign Language (BSL)
British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted performances feature an interpreter who describes the production for those who communicate using BSL. This is done using gestures, facial expressions and body language. The position of the BSL interpreter will usually be indicated on the seating plan.

Integrated BSL - performances with integrated BSL interpretation involve the interpreter being part of the action onstage.
Theatre captions are similar to television subtitles and convert spoken word in to visible text that provides those who are Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing with access to live performances.

Open captions are displayed on screens at either side of the stage for all audience members to view.

Closed captions can be viewed on your mobile device via a FREE app. These captions are usually available for events that are not at the theatre and are site specific.
