Policy to serve patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing

The Old Log Theatre is committed to providing effective communication and access to live performance theatre for all audiences, including individuals who are hard of hearing or deaf.  The type of auxiliary aid or service necessary to ensure effective communication will vary in accordance with the method of communication used by the hearing impaired individual; along with the nature, length and complexity of the performance.

 

Hearing device

For theatregoers who are hard of hearing, the Old Log Theatre provides a small, hand-sized receiver to amplify the sound.  Reservations for these Assistive Listening Devices can be made in advance by calling the Box Office and are offered for every performance subject to availability.  These devices are free of charge but may require a driver’s license or credit card as collateral for the device while in use.

 

Sign Language Interpreting at Select performances
For patrons that are deaf and use American Sign Language (ASL) as their primary means of communication, Old Log Theatre will make available an ASL interpreted performance for a date and time to be arranged by the Old Log Theater. Patrons should request an ASL performance when calling the Box Office to purchase tickets and should provide a minimum of six weeks advance notice in order for the theatre to obtain qualified interpreters.
