Hearing Assistance


Hearing Loop
Hearing loop systems take sound straight from the source and deliver it right into the listener’s hearing aid without extraneous noise or blurring. To them, it sounds like the speaker is right in their head. It turns their hearing aids into wireless earphones that broadcast sound customized for their hearing loss. For more information about the Hearing Loop click here for FAQs or click here to watch a brief video.


To use the hearing loop: Switch your hearing aid to the “T”, telephone, or hearing loop program. All but the very smallest modern hearing aids tend to be supplied with an internal t-coil. However, it may not have been enabled when the device was initially programmed. If you are not sure whether your hearing aid has a t-coil or if you do not know how to access the T program, your audiologist or hearing aid specialist will be able to advise.


Hearing Devices
Assistive listening devices with headphones are available, free of charge, to patrons at all performances. Contact the House Manager.
