Local Live Theater Captioned!

With thanks to Carrie Levin and the Assoiation of Late-Deafened Adults. The following is a message from Carrie:

TheatreWorks has finally agreed to open caption their live theatre performances in both venues:  Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, and Mountain View Center for Performing Arts.  I worked several months with attorney John Waldo whom I give credit for his diligence in working with staff of theatreWorks to make this happen.

We, ALDA SJ, have obtained vouchers for four (4) season tickets for all productions starting March 2016 to July 2017 – for free.  This includes the remaining 2015/2016 season and all of the 2016/2017 season.  Priority given to ALDA SJ members, then open to other late deafened/HOH folks. Vouchers are first come first served basis.
