Q Accessibility - Performance details

The Arvada Center strives to make the arts accessible to all people. As part of that effort, we produce theatrical performances for people with specific needs, including sensory-friendly performances, shadow interpreted performances, audio described performances and performances featuring American Sign Language interpreters.

Q Accessibility - Box office

The Arvada Center strives to make all classes, performances, and exhibitions as accessible as possible. As a facility owned by the City of Arvada, we continually audit our accessibility practices. If any patron has any mobility or accessibility needs, we recommend contacting our Box Office and we will do our utmost to meet all needs.

Q Accessibility - Wheelchair

Visitors to the Arvada Center who have mobility needs have access to all parts of our facility using extra-wide elevators and ramps. All performance spaces include wheelchair seats above the federally mandated requirement and classrooms and studios are designed to be accessible by any with mobility needs.

Q Accessibility - ASL & Audio Description

If any visitor requires ASL interpretation or audio description, these requests can be made through the Arvada Center Box Office at least 24 hours in advance of the performance, class, or gallery tour.

Q Accessibility - Sensory Friendly

Sensory-friendly are relaxed performances designed to be welcoming and inclusive for families of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, autism, sensory processing disorders or other conditions. Some performance elements have been changed to accommodate the needs of individuals who are sensitive to over-stimulation that might happen during a fully staged production. This includes softened lighting effects, lowering sound levels and a reduction of sudden movements. Lights are kept higher in the theatre so audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be and there is a “safe room” available during the performance.
For more information or to request an accessible performance please call the box office at 720-898-7200.
