Theatre Under the Stars

Accessibility

Theatre Under The Stars is committed to creating an environment where musical theatre can be fully enjoyed by all of our patrons. Through our No Boundaries program, we offer special events tied into each show such as Workshops and Touch Tours. Working in tandem with the Hobby Center, we are able to offer a variety of accessibility services and programming to our patrons.

No Boundaries
Our No Boundaries Workshops provide unique ways to enhance musical theatre for individuals with disabilities. These Workshops are centered on singing, dancing and creative art projects that tie into the theme of the corresponding production creating a memorable experience for everyone. These workshops are for all ages and their families and friends.

Touch Tours
Touch Tours are offered to our patrons with visual impairments. This is an opportunity for a tactile exploration of a production that may include handling props, set pieces, and costumes as well as verbal imaging provided by TUTS staff and the audio describer.

For more information on all of our Accessibility Programming and Services, please contact Elizabeth England at elizabethe@tuts.com.
