Sensory-friendly Performances

Triad Stage is proud to offer our first sensory-friendly performance at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 8th, 2018 at Hanesbrands Theatre in Winston-Salem. This performance of A Christmas Carol will contain the same artistic content and quality as our other performances, but with various accommodations for patrons who may benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere.

These accommodations may include:

  • An extended pre-show speech that will alert audience members of all abilities to sensory-rich moments during the show that may be startling to some.
  • Visual cues when a sensory-rich moment is about to happen. (Change of placement)
  • A smaller audience size to allow for easier movement and exiting/re-entering the theater during the performance.
  • Elevated houselights to allow for greater visibility.
  • Modified sound and music levels.
  • Support materials, including a "social story "that moves through the play visually through images, and a "visual guide" that walks audience members through what to expect when they arrive at the theatre. These materials will be available in mid-October.

American Sign Language Interpretated (ASL) & Audio Described (AD) Performances

Inclusion is one of our Core Values at Triad Stage, and we are happy to offer audio description and sign language interpretation of our MainStage productions to make them accessible to more members of our community. Below are the dates for ASL and AD performances in our 2018/2019 Season.

Tickets are $10 for our audio described and sign language interpreted sections at select performances. To book tickets, please contact the Triad Stage Box Office at 336.272.0160 and let them know which service you’d like to use so they can seat you in the appropriate section.

Touch Tours: Our audio described performances are preceded by optional touch tours for up to 20 people. Touch tours are short tactile introductions to the set, costumes and props prior to the show. Please mention if you would like to attend the touch tour when booking your tickets and plan to arrive 30 minute prior to the start of the performance.
