Asheville Community Theatre is committed to providing all patrons with a safe and enjoyable entertainment experience. Please contact the box office if you have questions or need to request specific accommodations.

Accessible Seating

Our Mainstage theatre seat map includes ten freestanding chairs designated as accessible seating. On our online seat map, these are labeled with a wheelchair icon or “C” for companion. These tickets are available to purchase online, in-person and over the phone. We ask that patrons who do not need the accessibility seats do not purchase them until no other seats are available.

For our 35below theatre: We do not have accessibility seating. Please put in the comment section what seating needs you have and the Box Office will try to accommodate. All seats in 35below are general admission and the first row is on floor level so wheelchair users can remain in their wheelchairs and watch the performance.

Both ACT theaters are ADA accessible.

Descriptive Audio for the Sight Impaired (DASI)

Descriptive Audio for the Sight Impaired (DASI) makes visual aspects of the performing arts accessible to visually impaired patrons. Actions, facial expressions, scenery, and costumes are described for patrons using special, unobtrusive microphones and a transmitter. DASI is independent of the theatre’s sound system, so only those who have DASI receivers will hear the descriptive audio. DASI creates an inclusive environment enabling the sight impaired to fully enjoy live theatre productions! DASI’s receivers can also be used with hearing aids for patrons with hearing difficulties. The receivers can be used in any seat at ACT. The only cost to a visually impaired patron who wishes to use DASI is the ticket price of the event being described. Volunteer drivers may receive a free ticket by calling or visiting our box office.

For specific dates, see each event page under ‘Shows & Events’.

For more information about DASI, please contact Jan Stanko, DASI President, at 828-253-8781.

Listening Devices

A limited number of listening devices are available at the box office for each Mainstage and Youth Production show.

Audience members with hearing aids with a T-coil or telecoil setting may switch on the T-coil setting to connect directly to the theatre’s sound system.

Service Animals

Guide dogs and service animals are permitted in our theatre. If possible, please inform us in advance by adding a note to an online ticket order or calling the box office. Thank you.
