Audio-Described Performances: A matinee performance of every production is Audio-Described by a live narrator for patrons who are blind or visually impaired. The pre-performance description of sets and costumes begins at approximately 20 minutes prior to curtain, and visual details are verbalized during the performance. When contacting the Box Office, please be sure to reserve a headset (at no additional fee).

Audio Enhancement: Syracuse Stage offers an infrared hearing system for patrons with up to 70% hearing loss. Headsets can be reserved free of charge through the Box Office or at the Coat Room before curtain.

Open Captioning: Open Captioning is provided for two matinee performances of every production. A small screen, placed to the side of the stage, displays text corresponding to the play's dialogue and other sounds. Open Captioning can be viewed from most seats in the theatre. However, for the most advantageous viewing, please contact the Box Office. 

Signed Interpreted Performance Series: An American Sign Language-Interpreted performance is offered for every production. For the most advantageous viewing, be sure to mention your interest in sign-interpretation when reserving tickets.

Is your online order process safe?

Yes. Our secure server software encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. The encryption process takes the characters you enter and converts them into bits of code that are securely transmitted over the Internet. When your order reaches our office, it can be decrypted only by designated individuals in our Ticket Office.

What provisions are made for patrons who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, or hard-of-hearing?

When will I receive my tickets?

All tickets are held at the box office and available for pickup 2 hours prior to curtain. Subscription series tickets are mailed at the end of the summer, or as the season progresses, you will receive them in the mail shortly after you purchase your subscription tickets.

What are my options in case of bad weather?

Productions may be cancelled due to bad weather or in the event the Mayor of Syracuse declares a "State of Emergency." Ticket holders may exchange for another performance of the same event. If the "State of Emergency" is declared in an area from which or through which a patron is driving, the above rules apply. During "Travel Warnings" or "Travel Advisories" free Missed Performance Passes will be offered to any ticket holder who chooses not to attend due to weather. Patrons using the Missed Performance Pass may choose another performance of the same event and will be seated just before curtain by the House Manager in available seating.

How long are the performances?

Performance run times vary. You may call the ticket office at 315-443-3275 the day of a performance to inquire as to the running time. This information is also posted in locations throughout the lobby when you arrive for a performance.

What should I wear to the performance?

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. Some audience members come to the theatre in more dressy attire, others arrive in more casual shirts and slacks. Either is fine.
