Dickens' A Christmas Carol
Hosted by Neptune Theatre, Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival (BAAFF)
We are pleased to announce that Neptune will have its first ever Audio Described Performance hit our Scotiabank Stage this holiday season! A big thanks to the Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival whose partnership has made this possible. Audio Description was originally designed to provide access for audience members who are blind or partially sighted, and is now also regularly used by people who are neurodiverse and/or have sensory sensitivities. We look forward to making this a regular part of our programming, and invite all patrons to come, be themselves and experience live theatre!
Patrons can collect the necessary equipment for the performance at the box office. This includes an earpiece and a small receiver, which are cleaned before and after each use.
Before the show starts, patrons will be welcomed into the theatre for an audio introduction which will be delivered through their earpiece and receiver.
We have accessible seating for patrons with wheelchairs and walkers upon request, and wheelchair-accessible washrooms.
