ACCESSIBILITY

Broadway at the Hobby Center is committed to making its performances and facilities accessible to all patrons.

Theater Drop-off Zone

Patron drop off can be accommodated at the front of the building in the valet driveway, both before and after performances.

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available on all levels of the Hobby Center Parking Garage, with convenient elevator access.

Wheelchair Accessible & Mobility Seating

Accessible Seating for wheelchair and limited mobility needs are available on all levels of the theater. Please specify your need for this seating when purchasing tickets. Patrons can purchase these tickets online at www.BroadwayAtTheHobbyCenter.com or www.Ticketmaster.com by selecting the “ADA Seating” filter on the seat map, calling 1-800-982-2787, or by visiting the Hobby Center Box Office in person during regular business hours.

Assisted Listening Devices

Assisted Listening Devices amplify and clarify sound and are available at all performances. Infrared assistive listening systems are installed in the theater and headsets may be used at any seat. Assisted Listening System headsets are available on a first-served basis at the Accessibility Kiosk in the Grand Lobby and Mezzanine. A photo ID must be given in exchange for an Assisted Listening Device, and will be returned at the end of the performance once the device is brought back.

Access Team

HCPA Access Team members are available to assist patrons who have accessibility needs. They are stationed at valet, near the garage, and in the breezeway. Look for these volunteers in their bright yellow polos!
