Seattle Rep is bringing patrons "into the loop!"
Seattle Repertory Theatre is proud to announce an innovative new assistive listening system for our patrons with hearing loss: the hearing loop system, a wireless technology that transmits speech or music on stage directly to theatergoers’ cochlear implants and hearing aids with T-coils. Patrons will hear sound picked up by the theatre’s PA system rather than from the microphone in an implant or hearing aid, resulting in a clearer sound with less background noise.
With the installation of this new system, Seattle Rep is now the largest institution in the city with full hearing accessibility.
What is a hearing loop?
A new assistive listening system that provides a clearer sound right to your personal hearing device.
How does a hearing loop work?
The system uses a wireless signal to transmit the sound from the theatre’s PA system to the T-coil in your cochlear implant or hearing aid.
Where will it work?
Coverage is provided wherever you see the T-coil symbol. Locations include the Bagley Wright Theatre, Leo K. Theatre, box office, concierge desk, and lobby concessions stand.
