Expanding Accessibility To Theatre

Bringing live theatre to the hearing impaired

A fundraising campaign for Boerne Community Theatre, Inc.

Live theatre can be a great and even transforming experience for theatre-goers. It can merely entertain, make you laugh or cry, and even provoke thoughtful conversation afterwards. Sadly, many people cannot really take advantage of this because of hearing loss. 

To widen access to our productions, Boerne Community Theatre has made the commitment to have one performance of each production captioned for the audience. No special equipment is needed by the viewer and no knowledge of sign language is necessary. A captioning bar is hung above the set so that anyone, whether slightly hard of hearing or profoundly deaf, can see the captions in real time as the action is presented on the stage. 

Donation levels are listed to give you an idea of the theatre's costs for productions. Any donation ($10 minimum) is welcome and all will go toward the captioning fund!


About the Organization

Boerne Community Theatre, Inc.

Boerne Community Theatre offers programming for the whole spectrum of the community. In addition to our main stage productions for adults, the theatre has a very active Teen Troupe which presents a play and a musical each year as well as one for the annual Texas Nonprofit Theatre Youth Drama /conference. Three summer camps offer two week sessions culminating in three performances of a full musical. The BCT Academy offers after-school classes in acting and music lessons. Seniors enjoy the ActIII@BCT reader's theatre classes taught by Bill Gundry and Jerry Watson.

The theatre purchased its facility in 2005 and continues to improve the aging building to meet its needs.
