The Merchant of Venice

Inside Out Theatre

For blind or visually impaired audience members we provide pre-show Touch Tours and Audio Described Performances. A touch tour is an opportunity for tactile exploration of the theatre prior to the show. One of our hosts will guide audience members while they explore the set, props, and costumes of the play. The hosts will also introduce the audience to actors and can answer any questions.

During the show an actor describes the visual elements of the performance in real-time through headphones.

The Merchant of Venice presented by The Shakespeare Company with Hit & Myth, in partnership with The University of Calgary Division of Drama, School of Creative and Performing Arts.
