Accessibility at Broadway Rose Theaters
Broadway Rose’s mission is to create unparalleled musical theatre experiences that invigorate audiences and enrich our communities. In addition to putting the best work possible on our stage, to us that also means making it possible for individuals to experience it as fully and comfortably as possible. Please contact us personally at 503.620.5262 if you have questions about our facilities and programs or if we can assist you in reserving accessible seating or help with other needs.
Broadway Rose Theatre Company performs in two venues, both with accessible seating: The first row of the New Stage Auditorium is at ground level and offers removable seats for patrons with wheelchairs or other mobility concerns. The Deb Fennell Auditorium includes a wide accessible aisle in the 7th row (row G) of the theater, which is at ground level to the entrances. Limited wheelchair and companion seating is available in the lower left and lower right sections of row G. Accessible rows are also available for those using walkers, canes, or who have difficulty navigating stairs. A limited number of armless chairs are available upon request. Note: all other rows require the use of stairs. Please call us at 503.620.5262 if we may assist you with reserving accessible seating.
Both Broadway Rose performance venues have free parking lots with dedicated disabled parking spaces. Because the Deb Fennell parking lots at Tigard High School tend to fill up during summer performances, we recommend persons with trouble walking arrive early to find parking near the entrances.
Assistive Listening Devices
For patrons with hearing loss, Broadway Rose provides Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) with over-the-ear headphone or inductive-coil attachments. These are available, free of charge, at our Will Call desk prior to the performance and can be reserved with either a driver’s license or credit card as collateral. Reservations may be made when you purchase tickets online by requesting an ALD headset in the Notes box, or reserve by phone at 503.620.5262.
Broadway Rose offers one audio-described performance per run of a show by request. Please call the box office at 503.620.5262 for details.
Large Print Programs
Complimentary large print programs are available at mainstage performances. Please inquire at the box office prior to the performance.
Occasionally productions may include the use of strobe effects, sudden loud noises such as gunshots, smoke or fog, and other sensory effects. In these cases, we post notices outside the auditorium prior to the performance.
Dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities are welcome at all Broadway Rose performances. If possible, please let us know at the time of booking so that we may ensure both you and your canine are seated comfortably.
Arts For All
Broadway Rose believes in accessible, affordable theatre for everyone. That’s why we proudly join with dozens of Portland’s best music, theatre, and dance groups in the “Arts for All” initiative and offer $5 tickets to current Oregon Trail Card holders. Learn more.
