Wheelchair & Limited Mobility Access

The majority of our High Performance Rodeo venues are accessible to guests in wheelchairs or using other mobility assistance devices. However, due to the nature of some performances access may be a challenge.  We encourage those patrons with particular questions about accessibility to contact our Box Office at 403.264.3224 ext. 4360.

Audience Inclusion

The High Performance Rodeo is pleased to be part of Inside Out Theatre’s Good Host program. That means we work to open up the theatregoing experience to select performances by offering accessible performances such as the following:

American Sign Language Interpreted Performances

For deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences, an American Sign Language interpreter converts the words spoken onstage into sign language.

Touch Tours & Audio Descriptions

For blind or visually impaired audience members. A pre-show touch tour allows for tactile exploration of the theatre prior to the show. Hosts guide audience members while they explore the play’s set, props, and costumes; they introduce the audience to actors and can answer any questions. During the show, an actor describes the visual elements of the performance in real time through headphones.

Relaxed Performances

 For audience members with sensory concerns, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, dementia; parents with babies; or anyone who finds regular theatre experience challenging. Small modifications to the production and the patron experience help reduce anxiety. Depending on the production, these may include: reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, reducing or eliminating strobe effects and keeping the lights in the audience slightly brighter in case a patron needs to leave the theatre.

Everyone is welcome to do whatever they have to do to be able to enjoy the play, including making noise, moving around, leaving the theatre and taking a break in the chill room.
