About captioned, audio described and BSL signed performances
Captioning converts the spoken word into text. The words appear on a screen at the same time as they are sung or spoken. Captions also include sound effects, offstage noises and character names.
Audio described performances
Audio description is a verbal commentary that tells visually impaired theatre-goers what is happening on the stage during the parts of the performance where there is no dialogue (i.e. during fight scenes)
BSL signed performances
A BSL interpreter will be at one side of the stage signing dialogue and stage directions.
