NJYT is fully committed to making its performances accessible to everyone wishing to attend. The theatres presenting NJYT performances agree to demonstrate good-faith efforts towards compliance with ADA accessibility standards.
Access Services offered by the presenting theatre/s of NJYT productions:
- Wheelchair seating and accessible restrooms
- Sign-interpreted performance
- Assistive listening systems
- Large-print program inserts
The theaters presenting an NJYT production have barrier-free access for patrons using wheelchairs or walkers. On-grade entrances and wide doorways enable people to reach all theater areas. Designated parking spaces are conveniently located, and accessible restroom facilities are available on orchestra level. Certain sections have integrated seating for patrons in wheelchairs.
Patrons with service animals are provided seats in most locations, with an effort made to locate the seats on an aisle, when possible.
A sign-interpreted performance will be listed for a specified date by the presenting theatre, and when this service is provided, then seats for patrons with hearing loss will be assigned closest to the sign language interpreter. Ticket orders for these seats may be placed by calling the Box Office, or special TTY number for the presenting theater.
An assistive listening system is available at each performance venue to patrons with hearing loss during all performances to assist with amplification and clarity.
Large-print program inserts are provided at performances when requested in advance.
The presenting theater has both an online Ticketing Service and on-premises Box Office, each providing a seating diagram or chart to clarify the location of accessible seating. The box office can also provide information on accessible travel routes to the theater, and parking, drop-off, pickup and entrance areas accommodating theater access.
Tickets for patrons requiring Access Services are available at a discounted rate or group rate. This accommodation requires three weeks advance notice and ticket purchase at that time by the patron, so the theater and NJYT can ensure a positive experience. The advance notice should clearly define the patron’s needs in terms of facility access and type of performance accommodation.
