We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy quality theatre. Below are some of the ways we try to meet the needs of as many patrons as possible. Please reach out to us if you have concerns about your visit.

Priority seating

Olney Theatre Center is accessible to patrons with mobility impairment. Please mention seating needs when placing your ticket order.

Assisted listening devices

For listening assistance during performances, our infrared system, which amplifies the sound on stage, is available free of charge. Please ask the house manager for assistance. (This service is not available on the third Wednesday evening of each production's run.)

Sign-interpreted performances

Sign-interpretation is available for each Mainstage Production the fourth Thursday of the run. This service must be requested two weeks in advance and will only be provided if it is requested. The service is also based on the availability of qualified interpreters. Additional interpreted performances can be scheduled for groups. Please email jvia@olneytheatre.org to request this service.

Audio-described performances

Audio-described performances are offered on the third Wednesday evening of each production's run. This service must be requested two weeks in advance and will only be provided if it is requested. Audience members may enjoy free broadcast pre-show program notes and descriptions of the action, scenery and costumes during pauses in the dialogue from any seat in the theater. The Metropolitan Washington Ear provides this service. Please email jvia@olneytheatre.org to request this service.
