Serving Everyone in our Community

At SpeakEasy Stage, we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive, accessible environment, welcoming everyone who wants to partake in our art, while treating all involved with respect.

We want to make sure that everyone feels not only included, but actively wanted in our space, and so we are dedicated to expanding the accessibility resources and programming we offer. 

We are committed to offering the following, for select productions:

  • Open Captioning – specially scheduled performance with live captioning visible to all patrons
  • Audio Description – live narration of visual elements to be experienced through headphones while watching the show live
  • Sensory Friendly Performance – a relaxed performance intended for those on the autism spectrum, with sensory sensitivities, or with other needs that might benefit a more relaxed environment

In SpeakEasy’s 2021-2022 season, we will be offering the following services:
