Accessible Seating For Your Convenience
Straz Center for The Performing Arts
Part of our community commitment includes ensuring accessibility for all Straz Center patrons. We are happy to accommodate our patrons' abilities, and we provide specific services available for each show. If you need sign language interpretation, please call (813) 229-7827 at least two weeks in advance of your show so we can secure a sign language performer for you. To meet this need for our Bank of America Best of Broadway Tampa Bay series, the first Thursday night of each Broadway show is an interpreted performance. Throughout our campus, you will find easy wheelchair access, including water fountains and ticket counters at appropriate heights as well as theater seating designed for space and ease. To purchase wheelchair-accessible seats, call a customer service representative at (813) 229-7827 or look for the designation when you order online at straz center.org. We also have bariatric wheelchairs and seating available that can be requested when purchasing your tickets over the phone or in person. In Morsani Hall, Ferguson Hall and the Jaeb Theater, we offer infrared listening system wireless headphones at no charge. A driver's license or $10 refundable deposit (cash or major credit card) are needed to check out the headphones. For companion restrooms, visit any level of Morsani Hall or the Orchestra level of Ferguson Hall. You will find accessible stalls in all restrooms on our campus.
