Performing at BACT’s Osher Theatre in Berkeley.
2022-23 Access Performance Dates
For blind and visually impaired audience members, Bay Area Children’s Theatre partners with Gravity Access Services to offer live audio description and haptic access tours for selected performances.
Audio description is a live audio track spoken by a professional audio describer to audience members with visual impairments through a wireless headset system. It provides clear and engaging descriptions of the meaningful visual details of a performance.
Haptic access tours (20-30 minutes) are a live pre-show tour that allows patrons to experience—through touch and their own movement— the space, performers, costumes, and objects in addition to key movement elements in the performance.
BACT partners with Urban Jazz Dance Company to provide ASL interpretation. Two interpreters will be present at each ASL interpreted show.
BACT believes everyone should have access to the arts! For low-income families interested in our financial assistance program, please reach out to email@example.com.
