     Discount tickets are available to people with disabilities and their accompanying support companions.

     Playbills are available in large print format. Upon request, brochures, newsletters, and flyers can be created in large print, and are either hand delivered, mailed, or e-mailed to patrons. If requested, every effort will be made to have this information available on audio-tapes and delivered to the patron in a timely fashion.

     Copies of scripts are available in large print format and, in some instances, available by way of attachments to e-mail.

     Sign language interpreted performances are offered at select performances throughout the season.

     Sensory seminars are offered upon request and require usually at least eight hours notice. The patron is asked to be at the theatre an hour-and-a-half before the play begins.  

     There is accessible seating for service animals.

     An infrared audio amplification system is installed and receivers are available at the box office.


Parking and Drop Off Areas:

     There are two spaces, marked with the International Symbol of Accessibility, both van accessible, and paved. There is an accessible drop off/passenger loading area in front of the entrance.

Wheelchair Lift & Parking Lot Entrance:     There is a wheelchair lift near the parking lot, fully-operable by one in the chair, able to take the person up to the second floor where the performance space is located, or to remain on the first floor. This entrance faces the parking lot. There is always a staff member present who knows how to operate this lift.

Street Entrance:

    The cement sidewalk to the main entrance meets the minimum requirements for accessibility, but the entrance has a non-accessible threshold. The doorway itself meets the minimum width requirements for accessibility and leads into a small landing.  From this landing are two small stairways with railings: one leading down to the restrooms and another leading to the vestibule, which serves as the theater’s lobby, box office area, and concession.      A staff person is always available to assist people with walking and visual difficulties up and down both sets of stairs.


     There is an accessible restroom on the same level as the sanctuary.

Lobby Area: Box Office & Concessions:   

     The lobby is also the vestibule of the church, and is accessible. There are no phones in the vestibule. The box office manager has a cell phone for anyone who requests the use of a phone.

    The box office phone is in ELTC’s office, which is not in the church. There is no TTY telephone, but staff members who answer the phone are aware of the relay service that can be reached by dialing 711.

    The water fountains are on the lower level. Front of house staff give cups of water to those who have walking difficulties. Bottled water is also available in the lobby area.

The Sanctuary (ELTC’s performance space):

    The vestibule and doorway leading into the sanctuary meet requirements for accessibility. The stationary pews are not accessible and comfortable seating capacity is 150. The two main aisles are wide enough for wheelchair accessibility, and up to 10 wheelchairs can be accommodated.

Technical Facilities: Stage Area and Dressing Rooms:

     The entrance to the lounge and dressing room areas, as well as these areas, are accessible. The route from the lounge area to the stage is not wheelchair accessible from backstage. With the use of a portable ramp, a performer in a wheelchair can have access.
