Audio-Visual Accommodations


CAPTIONED PERFORMANCES

For each production, we offer designated showtimes with captioning via a digital display screen. To ensure your seats are in the captioning sight line, please call Guest Services at (713) 220-5700.

Best Seats for the Hubbard Theatre: Section 5, Rows L-O.

AUDIO-DESCRIBED PERFORMANCES

For Hubbard Theatre productions, we offer designated performances that include additional descriptions of set designs, costumes, and other visual elements through headsets. These listening devices are free of charge with the deposit of a photo ID.

For more information, please contact Guest Services at (713) 220-5700 or boxoffice@alleytheatre.org.

ASSISTED LISTENING

Assisted Listening Devices: Easy-to-wear headsets provide clear, amplified sound. Available free of charge for all shows with the deposit of a photo ID.

Induction Loop Hearing System: In the Hubbard Theatre only, an induction loop system turns every Telecoil-equipped hearing aid and cochlear implant into a personalized listening device connected directly to the theatre’s sound system. A hearing loop system, unlike other personalized listening devices, takes advantage of the customized settings of the listener’s own hearing aid or cochlear implant.

*Please note our system is not compatible with Bluetooth Hearing aids.

SIMULTANEOUS SPANISH TRANSLATIONS

We continue to expand access to theatre to our Houston Hispanic community. We will have performances with simultaneous Spanish translations during American Mariachi and A Christmas Carol. Select your seats and immerse yourself in the story using a headset device.
