Audio Described Performances

One of the central aspects of Seattle Children's Theatre's mission is a commitment to serving diverse communities including those with low vision or blindness. Audio described performances are available throughout the season. Please see below for more information.


What is Audio Description? - Audio Description (AD) is a narration service that attempts to describe the visual aspects of theatre and make the visual an auditory experience, with the goal of helping visually impaired audience members share in the experience of live theatre more fully. At SCT, our Audio Described performances are narrated in real time, using concise, objective descriptions to depict new scenes, settings, costumes, body language, and sight gags.

Starting about 10 minutes prior to every AD performance, there is a brief description of the theatre itself as well as credits and descriptions of the actors and other information that is in the program. On the day of the performance, headsets for audio description are available through the house manager.
