Accessible Performances

The Ordway is committed to addressing barriers to participation that can restrict access to the performing arts for schoolchildren, adults, and organizations.

The Ordway has an accessible entrance, accessible backstage, accessible restrooms, an additional companion care restroom, and service animals are welcome.

Select performances and events have scheduled access services, including American Sign Language interpretation, audio description, open captioning, or designated Sensory-Friendly. See the upcoming accessible performance listing below.

Access services for non-designated events are available upon request. If you need an accommodation, please make a request no less than two weeks in advance of the event. The request is subject to the availability of a service provider and is provided at the discretion of the management. Email access@ordway.org or call 651.224.4222 | 651.282.3100 (TTY). Learn more about access at the Ordway. >>
