Kirby Interior Spotlight

The Theatre includes three levels (approximately 22,000 square feet), all of which are fully accessible to people with disabilities — both audiences and Theatre employees alike. There are two entrances to the building, both of which are ramped for people using wheelchairs, and elevators offer access to all public spaces. A second elevator was installed on the bottom floor providing access from the Green Room and dressing rooms to the stage. A total of eight wheelchair positions are available in the Theatre, and Braille signage appears throughout the building wherever public signs are posted.
