American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreted Performances

The first Thursday of each Broadway show in the Bank of America Broadway at The Straz series is an ASL-interpreted performance.

Requests for American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation for all other performances should go directly through our Ticket Sales Office. Please call (813) 229-7827 at least two weeks prior to your show so we can secure this service for you.

For all other performances, you should call at least two weeks prior to your show so we can make every reasonable accommodation to secure a sign language performer for you.

Hearing Devices

Infrared listening devices are available for all performances in Morsani Hall, Ferguson Hall and the Jaeb Theater. There is no charge for the device which can be picked up before show time at the Guest Services Desk on the ground floor of each theater’s lobby.

We have two different headsets available.

headset1.jpgThe first is the Infra-red headset that has 2 earbuds. It is worn in the orientation it is shown in the picture with the center of the headset hanging below the user's chin.

headset2.jpg The second is the T-coil induction loop model designed to be used with T-coil compatible hearing aids. This unit is worn around the neck like a necklace with the volume control lying on the user's chest. The T-coil uses near field wireless technology to send the audio signal directly to the user's T-coil compatible hearing aid. These T-coil loops must be used with a matching hearing aid.

Service Animals

ADA–certified service animals are welcome inside the Straz Center building and must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times. If you intend to bring a service animal to a performance, please notify your ticket agent at the time of purchase so that we can identify the most suitable seating location for you.
