Accessibility at Tarragon Theatre

As Canada’s neighborhood theatre, Tarragon is dedicated to fostering a space of creativity, care, and meaningful inclusion for all. We believe in offering an environment where artists can create and develop their work with support and freedom, while encouraging all theatregoers from all realities to experience the dynamism of storytelling.  Tarragon continually investigates how we can foster access to our work so that everyone is enriched by theatre and its invaluable impact on community. We are committed to the ongoing learning required to offer Creative Access to our current and future artists, as well as our patrons, and look forward to offering our theatre as a home to play, live and grow for all.

 

“No barriers, no shame, only access”

-Mike Payette, Artistic Director

AUDIENCES

Tarragon Theatre is committed to extending a high level of customer service to all of its patrons. We are dedicated to demonstrating leadership by working constructively with our patrons, staff, volunteers, and community to meet and exceed the requirements which will identify, prevent, and remove barriers so a fulfilling theatrical experience can be enjoyed by patrons with disabilities in our building.

To this end, we will work to ensure that we meet and surpass our patrons’ needs to the best of our ability. If you feel that there is a way that we can better accommodate your needs, please do not hesitate to contact Natasha Parsons (Director of Patron Services)  email: patronservices@tarragontheatre.com for further assistance.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you. We are also happy to offer a free companion ticket to those living with a disability who require assistance to use our space. We’ve formalized this policy by becoming an Access2 Venue. To book one of these tickets please call our box office at 416 531-1827.
