Access shows available for Dick Whittington

Harrogate Theatre wants everyone to experience the magic of pantomime and has a variety of adapted performances available to fulfil your wish of every member of your group having a fabulous time. From relaxed to captioned, and audio described we’ve got the right show for you.  

Captioning is like subtitles for the stage. It really helps if you use subtitles on tv or find you miss some of the dialogue when you attend live performances. Box office can book the best seats for you to have a clear sight of one of the captioning boxes or look for the italic i symbol on the stalls seats when booking online. The captioned Dick Whittington dates are Sunday 10th December at 12 noon or Friday 5th January at 7pm 

We have BSL interpretation on Saturday 9th December at 12noon and Friday 29th December at 2pm. Box office can book the best seats for you to have a clear sight of the interpreter or look for the italic i symbol on the stalls seats if booking online.  

We have audio description on Saturday 9th December at 12noon and Friday 29th December at 2pm. Describers will paint a fun aural picture with words so everyone can laugh at the visual gags and vibrancy of the show.  Call Box Office on 01423 502 116 to book a free pre-show familiarisation tour on our audio described shows where your group can feel props and costume from the show to enhance the descriptions. Pick up a headset from Box Office when you arrive to experience the audio description which starts 15 minutes before the show. 

Perhaps you know a pre-school child who you’d like to treat to their first experience of theatre or pantomime and you’re nervous about how they will respond to the noise and lights? Or a member of your group has additional needs? Then the relaxed shows on Thursday 21st December at 2pm or Thursday 11th January at 10am with low lighting on throughout, quieter sound levels and a reduced capacity might be the ideal show for your group. 

With complementary carer tickets available our greatest wish this year is that your group have a great time at Dick Whittington! For further information call our friendly Box Office team on 01423 502 116 Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 4pm.
