For general inquiries, specific concerns, or special requests, please contact our box office, at 732.345.1400 or email email@example.com. If a patron cannot attend a scheduled audio-described, sign-interpreted, or open captioned performance, a patron can request one of these services at least three weeks prior to the required date by contacting our box office at 732.345.1400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
BARRIER-FREE ACCESS: The theater provides barrier-free access for patrons using wheelchairs or walkers. On-grade entrances, elevators, railings, and wide doorways allow people easy access to all theater spaces. During our Building Expansion, designated parking spaces are located outside of our main entrance. An accessible unisex restroom is available on our Parterre level (outside of the elevator), as well as wider stalls with assistive bars in our mens’ and ladies’ restrooms in our lobby.
There is integrated seating for patrons in wheelchairs. Please inform the box office, 732.345.1400, of your needs when ordering tickets.
Patrons with mobility-impairments who do not have access to a wheelchair may request a wheelchair to transport the individual to their seat. You can inform us of your needs prior to the performance by calling the box office, 732.345.1400, or stopping by the box office when entering.
Patrons wishing to transfer from a wheelchair to a seat can request to have their wheelchair stored during the performance. Please inform the staff if you will need assistance during intermission. A staff member will return your wheelchair to you at the end of the performance.
ASSISTIVE LISTENING: Assistive Listening Devices are available for individuals with hearing loss, for all performances, to assist with amplification and clarity. Patrons wear a lightweight headset, with no wires or cables, which operate with an infra-red system. Please stop by the box office upon your arrival to request a headset. We ask that you leave a credit card or driver’s license as collateral. There is no charge for this service.
LARGE PRINT PROGRAMS: Large print programs are available at the box office.
AUDIO DESCRIPTION: Scheduled Audio Description performances for patrons with vision loss are offered for each of our subscription series productions. Using a lightweight headset, with no wires or cables, which operate with an infra-red system, patrons can hear a live, objective, and concise description of the action on stage. Headsets are available at the box office, and we ask that you leave a credit card or driver’s license as collateral. Discount tickets are $25 and are available to patrons benefiting from this service.
OPEN CAPTIONED: Scheduled Open Captioned performances for patrons with hearing loss are offered for each of our subscription series productions. This service is useful to those who may not fully benefit from the infra-red amplification system, or who need help catching particular words. A screen, which projects dialogue as the action occurs live on stage, is placed to the side of the stage. There is no special equipment necessary to take advantage of this service, but for the best viewing, please inform the box office that you are interested in this service when ordering tickets. Discount tickets are $25 and are available to patrons benefiting from this service.
AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE: ScheduledAmerican Sign Language interpreted performances for patrons with hearing loss, and fluent in ASL, are occasionally offered. Theatrical interpreters stand near the stage translating the dialogue into ASL. For best viewing, please inform the box office that you are interested in this service when ordering tickets. Discount tickets are available to patrons benefiting from this service.
RELAXED PERFORMANCES: Relaxed Performances are designed to provide a welcoming and judgement-free theater experience for all families.
Does your child have difficulty sitting still in her seat? Does your child like to verbally respond during a performance? Is your child on the autism spectrum? Does your child have sensitivity issues or special needs? Are you afraid of disturbing other patrons if you need to get up during a performance?
For a Relaxed Performance, usual theater etiquette ‘rules’ do not apply. Small adjustments are made, such as lights remaining on at a low level in the theater during the performance; sound kept at a low level, especially for startling or loud sounds; patrons are free to respond verbally, move around, and leave their seats during the performance; use of iPads and other electronics for communication purposes is permitted; a designated quiet activity and relaxation area is provided within the theater; pre-visit materials for what to expect at the theater are provided (check the production’s Audience Extras section for updates); and Two River Theater staff and volunteers are on hand to help if needed.
We put the “relax” in Relaxed Performances. All are welcome—art is for everybody!
Two River Theater’s Access Programs are made possible through support from Springpoint Senior Living Foundation at The Atrium at Navesink Harbor, The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, and New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
