Theatre Three Announces Partnership with Deaf Action Center

Theatre Three announces their partnership with the Deaf Action Center to begin a series of interpreted performances for patrons that are deaf or hard of hearing. The partnership will begin a process wherein one performance of each production in both Theatre Three's main stage season and Theatre Too's season will have BEI/RID certified interpreters in place to sign the performance.

"Everyone at Theatre Three is pleased about our new collaboration with Deaf Action Center," says Theatre Three Managing Director Merri Brewer. "We truly want everyone to feel at home at Theatre Three, and we are really seeking ways to create access for our community and our neighbors."

And the two organizations will truly be neighbors soon. The Deaf Action Center, currently located on Crestview Drive in Dallas, will be moving to 5910 Cedar Springs Road on August 17-putting it just up the street from the theatre.

"It is exciting for us to be partnering with Theatre Three to bring more venues to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community that are normally inaccessible," says Deaf Action Center Communication Access Department Manager Eric Patterson. "To be able to work with another non-profit organization whose mission statement aligns with ours in terms of ensuring community advancement through education and economic security is a treat. We look forward to providing certified and qualified sign language interpreting services for Theatre Three so that more shows are made accessible for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing."

Additionally, the partnership will include a co-hosted Deaf led event that is TBD. More information will be released regarding this event by the Theatre Three and Deaf Action Center Facebook pages, so patrons are encouraged to follow those accounts.
