VocalEye Live Description Available Thursday, Aug. 11

Vocal EyeOur August 11 performance will offer a live description for the visually impaired by VocalEye followed by a Touch Tour. We will be offering a 2-for-1 rate for VocalEye users and one guest/attendant.

VocalEye’s described performances begin ten minutes before the show, with a brief introduction to the characters, costumes and locations. Once the show begins, important visual details and physical actions are described between the lines of dialogue. All descriptions are voiced live and in real-time by a trained describer.

Only VocalEye users can hear the description through a small handheld receiver and single earpiece that can be worn on either ear. Equipment can be picked up from the VocalEye table in the entrance up to one hour before the show starts. Users are welcome to bring their own earbuds or portable headphones.

Theatre Buddies are also available to guide patrons from the Stanley Park Bus Loop. Please reserve your Theatre Buddy by email or call 604-364-5949 at least 48 hours in advance. For more information on the service, visit vocaleye.ca.
