NEW! The HeArd's Upcoming Performances 2019-2020

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act ensures that events open to the public, such as any performance at a "theater, concert hall, stadium, or other place of exhibition or entertainment" will provide equal access for all participants, including Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals. When requested, this includes the provision of qualified sign language interpreters to facilitate effective communication between people whose primary method of communication is sign language and those whose primary method of communication is speech.
