There are two posted handicap parking spaces at the base of the paved, somewhat long, upgrade sidewalk that leads to the front door. There is a door threshold to negotiate getting into the building, but everything inside is flat. Our chairs aren’t permanently fastened down, so people in wheelchairs can sit anywhere they want. The restroom adjoins the space and is roll-in accessible with grab bars.

The floor in the performance room is the original slab-on-grade concrete from 1925, and there are some areas where settling and age have made potential trip hazards for those with balance issues or shuffling gaits, and cane users. The usual amount of caution is appropriate.

If you have any needs or concerns, please contact us and we’ll try our level best to make your attendance enjoyable.

If we were able, we’d have fulltime ASL, assistive listening devices, audio descriptions of visual elements, all the things. If you need something like that, or something else, please contact us and we’ll do our level best.

For those with MCS or scent allergies, you need to know that there’s an artisan soapmaker in the building. They have good ventilation in their production area, and we run a pair of high volume air purifiers, but smells do waft. If you come to a show and find it unbearable and need to leave, let us know and we will refund your admission.

If you’re a performer with disabilities that prevent you from getting onto our low stage (about 8″), we can move the audience back and have you in front of the stage. We’ve done it, it works fine.
