Featured Season Show

The Scarlet Letter

Feb 3 – 25 / 2024

American Sign Language Interpreted

American Sign Language Interpreted Performances for patrons with hearing loss, and fluency in ASL. Theatrical interpreters stand near the stage translating the dialogue into ASL.

Audio Described

Audio Description is available for patrons with vision loss. Using a lightweight headset, with no wires or cables, that operates with a FM system, patrons can hear a live, objective and concise description of the action on stage.

Open Captioned

Open Captioning is available for patrons with hearing loss. This service is useful to those who may not fully benefit from the FM 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.

Hester Prynne dares to strive for a better life for herself and her daughter. Kate Hamill, one of American theater’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights, reimagines Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic tale of courage. This world premiere, directed by Shelley Butler, showcases the strength of a woman who will not let the rules of an unjust society define her.
