Open Captioning

MRT OPEN CAPTIONING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TDF

Thanks in part to a grant and guidance from TDF, Merrimack Repertory Theatre will offer an open captioning performance for all shows this season.

 

For the 2018-19 season, MRT is excited to offer our hearing-impaired patrons a new way to experience live theatre: open captioning during one Sunday matinee (2:00 pm) of each play. Open captioning uses a text screen on the side of the stage to display simultaneous translation of dialogue and lyrics during a live performance. The text is easily viewable from seats in the theatre and may be helpful for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. When booking your seats, mention your interest in open captioning in order to secure the most advantageous view of the display.

NATIVE GARDEN: Sep. 30, 2018
MURDER FOR TWO: Nov. 4, 2018

When booking your tickets, mention your interest in open captioning in order to secure the best view of the display. Please call the Box Office at 978-654-4678.
