Hearing LoopHearing Loops and Headsets

Hearing loops, which are compatible with hearing aids, are worn around the neck and provide amplification of the sound on stage. 

Headsets are for those who would like audio amplification, but don't wear a hearing aid. Headsets can be set to provide both Audio Description of the action on stage and amplification of the sound on stage, or just stage sound amplification.

Hearing loops and headsets are available at all performances for stage sound enhancement, however only certain performances will have audio description. Please ask at the Ticket Office for advice on the best places to sit.
