We are happy to provide a script in advance to audience members who request this service. Contact the box office at theatreboxoffice@depaul.edu to request a script. We also offer ListenUp! personal listening devices for each performance. These assistive listening devices are available free of charge to patrons upon request.

We also invite you to join us that day for a pre-performance program with a touch tour, which begins at 6 PM in the Fullerton Stage lobby. The touch tour program will include information about the characters and design choices that add to the world of the play. Patrons who are participating in the audio-described event may also request the playbill in Braille, large print, and audio formats.
