Two River Theater seeks to create an audience that will learn to cherish the experience of theatre as an intimate one that is enriched and deepened to the extent it is shared with a community of others from varying backgrounds, experience and needs.  Two River is dedicated to providing equal access to all its constituencies, no matter what their special needs may be. 

Two River Theater does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to our programs, services, or activities.  No person with disabilities will be denied access to our work, and when necessary, accommodations will be made to allow the fullest level of participation possible.
