ASL and Deaf Interpreted Performances at the 2019 Toronto Fringe

The Toronto Fringe Theatre Festival runs from July 3rd through 14th at venues around the city. Several performances are offered with ASL/Deaf interpretation and have a signing front of house volunteer to greet you. A list of ASL/Deaf interpreted performances can be found in our Assisted Performances supplement at https://fringetoronto.com/fringe/shows/access/signed.

For ASL/Deaf Interpreted performances, please arrive at least 25 minutes and no later than 15 minutes before performance start time. This will ensure priority seating with good sight lines when you identify yourself at the venue Box Office.

On July 8th at 9 pm, join us at the Fringe patio, PostScript, for a free performance by the fabulous POC Deaf feminist artist, Tamyka Bullen. A number of our other patio events are ASL interpreted.

The Toronto Fringe Theatre Festival is coming up very soon at venues around the city. We thought your community might be interested in our more accessible performances so please consider sharing this email with your distribution lists, friends or community.

We have put together an Assisted Performance Supplement which lists all of our ASL/Deaf Interpreted performance, Relaxed, and Audio Described performances along with dates, times, location, and brief descriptions. It can be downloaded here.

We do our best to ensure that ASL fluent front of house volunteers are present at all ASL interpreted performances to greet patrons at the door. For ASL and Deaf interpreted performances, patrons are asked to arrive at least 25 minutes and no later than fifteen minutes before the performance start time. To ensure priority seating with good sight lines we ask patrons to identify themselves to Front of House upon arrival. Front of house ushers will indicate the best seating.

Our accessible offerings also include audio described performances and Relaxed performances where regular theatre conventions like a darkened theatre and staying seated are put aside in favour of a more welcoming atmosphere.

Finally, patrons can join us for fun, sun and free performances at the Fringe patio, PostScript, during the Festival. On Monday, July 8th at 9 pm, there will be a performance by the fabulous POC Deaf feminist artist, Tamyka Bullen. A number of our other patio events are also ASL interpreted.
