The IRT offers one American Sign Language Interpreted and Audio Described performance for each Mainstage and Upperstage production. Patrons who are deaf are encouraged to sit in the interpretation zone (please request with the Ticket Office when purchasing tickets or packages) and meet their interpreters before the play begins. For patrons who are blind or have low vision, we offer Assisted Listening Devices free of charge. An audio describer will sit in a booth and share with you what movements and emotions are taking place on the stage to help you piece together the dialogue. If you have any questions or comments about these services, please contact our House Manager Amanda Lyons at 317.916.4805 or alyons@irtlive.com.

  • Accessible Seating is available in both the OneAmerica Stage and the Upperstage.

  • For patrons who are exceptionally tall or have long legs, we recommend selecting row S when attending a performance at the OneAmerica Stage – it has additional legroom and no one will be seated behind you.
  • For heavyset patrons, chairs without arms can be placed in the Mobility Needs Accessible seating. If you select one of these seats online, the ticket office will send you a brief email to ascertain the best way to accommodate your needs. In addition, on the OneAmerica stage, there are several seats with armrests that lift up. They are: E 1, G 1, J 1, F 2, H 2, and K2. On the Upperstage, the seats on the side sections are slightly wider and may provide more comfort.
