Making Live theatre available for everyone
NTP is committed to bridging the gap between our MainStage plays and our outreach program. Participants of all abilities, from all walks of life, are encouraged to audition for our shows an volunteer backstage. NTP believes theatre is for everyone - regardless of physical or intellectual ability. If you or someone in your life faces access challenges and wants to be involved in theatre, we hope you keep NTP in mind.
ASL Interpreted Programs
Starting in our 14th Season, NTP began exploring the possibility of adding sign language interpretation to our programs. For two years we have had ASL nights at our Shakespeare in the City events and we add more programming each year.
Assisted Listening Devices
Assisted listening devices using headphones and/or neck loops are available at the Box Office before performances. Please see the house manager or an usher prior to the show and bring your ID to check out an assisted listening device.
Three Notch Theatre is handicap accessible and can provide seating for patrons with mobility restrictions. We have made great strides in making our stage more accessible as well, adding a backstage ramp in 2018. If someone in your party is in need of handicap seating please let the box office attendant know upon arrival and we will be happy to assist you.
Our Outreach Chairman organizes 2-4 special events each year in partnership with local non-profit organizations who cater to individuals with special needs. Special needs guests and their caregivers enjoy performances especially tailored to meet their need requirements and provide a fully interactive and immersive experience.
