Captioned Performances

Captioned Performances

Captioning converts spoken word into text and is presented on a screen at the side of the stage. Captioned performances are currently available for some touring productions in the Main House and the Studio.

Closed Captioning using the Difference Engine

Some performances are captioned using The Difference Engine - a tool that can be downloaded as an app onto your smart phone or tablet prior to the show. Visit your app store to download.

Please try to arrive 30 minutes before the show so that we have time to give clear instructions to each individual audience member who requires this service. The captioning is streamed directly to your phone so we recommend that your mobile device is fully charged prior to the performances. This is not a replacement for BSL and we appreciate it will not be suitable for all who are Deaf and hard of hearing.
