American Sign Language Interpretation

The Marcus Center Broadway Series offers sign language-interpreted performances for the 2:00 p.m. Saturday matinees. If you are unable to attend the scheduled sign language interpreted performance, alternative arrangements can be made. In order for arrangements to be made with a sign language interpreter, please notify the Marcus Center two weeks in advance of your performance.

Assistive Listening Devices

Uihlein Hall: Uihlein Hall assisted listening is transmitted via infrared. We have 2 receiving options available for our patrons: a stethophone infrared receiver, or the neck induction loop receiver for patrons with hearing aids equipped with a “T” coil.

The neck induction loop, used in conjunction with the body pack infrared receiver allows the user to receive wireless, clarified sound using our infrared listening system inside the theater. The technology is designed to work in conjunction with a person’s hearing aids. Note: The hearing aid must be equipped with a “T” switch or have a telecoil setting to use the neck induction loop.

The listening devices are distributed from the Public Information Office located on the north side of the Orchestra Level with a picture I.D.

Todd Wehr Theater: Stethophone infrared receivers are available that have a port that can accept a loop device plugged into it for patrons with hearing aids equipped with a “T” coil. We request a picture I.D.

Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall : The Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall listening system is transmitted via an FM radio signal. FM receivers with lightweight headphones are available with a picture I.D.
