As part of our aim to make theatre more accessible to all, we have added Polish-language captions to our online broadcasts of The Midnight Gang (available until 29 May) and Beauty and the Beast (available from 21 May until 19 June).
This follows on from a scheme we introduced in 2019, offering Polish-language audio description for some productions including a performance of The Wizard of Oz. Local families were invited to trial the service, which involved a translator delivering live Polish audio description to individuals via audio headsets, and give feedback - some of which you can hear in the video below.
There is a large Polish-speaking community in the Chichester area and we wanted to break down the language barrier that may prevent some families and individuals from enjoying theatre.
We have a Polish interpreted performance of our Christmas production, Pinocchio scheduled for Monday 21 December. If you or someone you know would be interested in hearing more about our foreign language interpreted performances, please email email@example.com
