Published DateMEREDITH — The new Winnipesauke Playhouse campus in Meredith is open and the state-of-the-art theatre has many new features to ensure that every patron experiences the performance to its full potential.
The theatre, in addition to increased capacity, also offers an improved Assisted Listening System which ensures that patrons who have experienced varying degrees of hearing issues can better enjoy performances. Any hearing aid user who has a tele-coil function in their hearing aid will be able to access the theatre system directly after turning on that function. Patrons may need to contact their hearing aid provider to inquire about the tele-coil in their particular hearing aid to ensure that it has been activated and instructed on how to turn it on when they are in the theatre.
For patrons without tele-coil hearing aids, the Playhouse has a limited number of headsets available on a first-come, first-serve basis. These headsets can be accessed at the box office the night of the play or can be reserved when patrons purchase their ticket.
The Assisted Listening System is made possible by a generous donation from The Maurice and Rhoda Miller Endowment Fund.
