Vocal Eye

The Arts Club is proud to offer VocalEye Live Description for people who are blind or partially sighted at the Stanley Industrial Stage and the Granville Island Stage this season.

Each performance listed below will be described live for patrons who are blind and partially sighted. The description will not be audible to the general audience. Ten minutes before the show begins, VocalEye patrons will hear a brief description of the set, characters, props and costumes. Once the show begins, the VocalEye describer will convey important visual information and physical action, live, between the actors' lines. Patrons can reserve their tickets and description equipment by calling the Arts Club Box Office at 604.697.1644. The equipment consists of a handheld receiver and a single plastic earpiece that fits over either ear. The receivers are also compatible with most personal earbuds and headphones. Equipment is available, at no charge, for pickup at the VocalEye table in the lobby up to one hour before showtime. VocalEye’s Theatre Buddies will be available to escort you to your seats and assist you with setting up your receiver and ear piece. For more information, call our box office at 604.687.1644.

Please note that Friday performances are based on availability

Peter Pan Goes Wrong

Relaxed performances are designed for anyone who might benefit from a more casual audience environment, including people with sensory processing conditions, autistic people, disabled people, parents with babes in arms, and more! There is a laid-back approach to noise and movement within the theatre space, which may be a good introductory experience for new theatre patrons.
