Seating for patrons utilizing mobility devices and for their companions are located at all levels and prices for all performances.  Additionally, there are transfer arm seats located in the Orchestra and Orchestra Terrace levels for those patrons who are able to transfer from their mobility device into a fixed theatre seat. Our volunteer ushers are available at the doors to both Jackson Hall and the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre to assist you in getting to your seat. Please note that for your safety our ushers are not able to physically assist you into a theatre seat from your mobility device.
