Stagetext increases access to the arts for people with a hearing loss by promoting the use of captioning systems that display the text as it is sung or spoken, enabling people with a hearing loss to follow dialogue on an equal basis with their hearing peers. Our funding supports core costs.
Getting More Theatre For Your Bucks
In this short film, audience members talk about their experience of attending captioned theatre performances. At a captioned performance, the text of the play is displayed as the actors sing or speak the lines, which can ensure that every audience member catches every word.
To find out more about theatre captioning, please visit our website: www.stagetext.org
You can also sign up for a monthly e-newsletter which lists the captioned performances that are taking place across the country by emailing us at email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you at a captioned show soon!

We all have the right to enjoy the theatre without facing barriers. Did you know that 11 million people in the UK are deaf or visually impaired? Could you be welcoming more of them to your venue?

A Play in the Life of a Captioner - STAGETEXT
Captioning in theatres offers one in seven people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing access to plays and performances.
Here, captioner Alex Romeo tells us all about the work that goes into captioning one show. From receiving the script to the final performance, and all the work that goes into giving deaf people the same access as their hearing counterparts.
Hundreds of plays are captioned each year, giving access to audiences with a hearing loss. For more information about STAGETEXT and upcoming captioned shows, just go to http://stagetext.org
