Open Caption


Open Caption Performances

Open-captioning is a service that displays the text of a show simultaneously with the performance without the use of any special equipment by the patron. The words are displayed on a 4-foot by 1-foot LCD screen located near the edge of the stage and are thus “open” to anyone within view. We recommend you book your tickets with a Box Office representative to ensure that you are seated in an area with the best view of the display. Please call 860.873.8668.

Learn more about Open Captioning here.

Oklahoma!  Friday, Sept 15 · 8:00pm
Rags Friday, December 1 · 8:00pm
