New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) Interpreted Performances

NZSL-interpreted performances feature a trained interpreter from Platform Interpreting New Zealand who appears on stage signing the show for Deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons in the audience. The interpreters carefully translate the play’s script prior to the performance and work closely with the cast and crew to incorporate the director's vision into the final interpretation.

Every show in our 2024 Season has one NZSL-interpreted performance. See a list of upcoming performances below or look out for the NZSL icon on the performance calendar on each show page.
