SCHEDULED AUDIO DESCRIPTION AND ASL INTERPRETATION
SteppingStone Theatre offers scheduled Audio Described and ASL Interpreted performances for each production, with those services offered at no additional cost to the patron. ASL Interpreted performances are scheduled for the second Sunday afternoon performance of each run. Please check the specific show page for all accessible show dates.
Assisted listening devices are available by request at the Box Office.
SteppingStone Theatre’s new facility is fully wheelchair accessible. The accessible entrance is located on the north side of the building off the alley parking lot. There are two reserved accessible parking spaces adjacent to the entrance. From this entrance, patrons can go down to the offices and studios, up to the auditorium and lobby, and further up to the stage. A wheelchair-accessible restroom is located in the theatre lobby.
Several programs make SteppingStone affordable and accessible to all:
Pay As You're Able Shows
SteppingStone Theatre offers one performance per production at a pay what you can rate. Generally this performance is the first Sunday of the production. Tickets can be purchased in person at any price that suits you (suggested minimum is $5.00). Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so we suggest arriving 30-45 minutes before show time to purchase tickets.
Any school can apply for a Main Stage Scholarship to lower the per-student cost of attending. Depending on the demonstrated need, SteppingStone may be able to offer a reduced rate to your school or organization. We work directly with teachers and principals, as well as through ”Tickets for Kids`` and ``Project Success`` to distribute tickets at a reduced rate.

All Camps are Pay As You’re Able
That means exactly what it says - pay what your family can afford.
Our full registration fee represents the amount that it costs us to bring this program to you. But for your family, Pay As You're Able may mean covering your fees and someone else's. It could also mean paying half or some of the fee.
If these options do not work for your family financially, we still want your young artist to be able to attend. Reserve a spot with a $50 deposit and we will work with you to make attendance possible.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are available via email M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following:
At SteppingStone, we are committed to access and inclusion for all people. Our programs stand firmly in opposition to racism and we challenge our young artists, staff, and Board of Directors to foster inclusion and to seek equity for all, including Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQAI+, economically disadvantaged, all religions, veterans, active military, and those with accessibility needs. We work with families to meet students’ needs be it social, academic, developmental, or physical. SteppingStone respects students’ gender expression and provides access to gender-neutral facilities.
Young people are artists, makers, and doers. They need to belong and to contribute to their world. When young people make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.
SteppingStone ignites belonging, generosity, mastery, self-advocacy, and inspiration by creating art with young people to share with the world.
