VOLUNTEER AUDIO DESCRIBERS NEEDED
FOR 2018 PLAYHOUSE PRODUCTIONS
For more than ten years The Vermont Council of the Blind has been audio describing one performance of each of our productions so that our visually impaired and blind audience members may enjoy our shows more fully.
This year The Vermont Council of the Blind is in need of additional volunteer Audio Describers and we would like you to consider volunteering for this exciting and rewarding endeavor.
How it works: During each described performance Audio Describers sit in a windowed office overlooking the stage and describe the action of the play into a microphone while blind audience members in the theater listen to the description through personal earphones.
Learn how: A one-day Audio Describer training session will be given to new describers conducted by members of The Vermont Council of the Blind. The training session will take place at the Playhouse this May. At the one-day training session volunteers will learn how to describe the play’s sets, describe the story of the play, describe the costumes, indicate who is on stage, and let the audience know about the action that is taking place on stage.
Each Audio Describer is offered a complimentary seat at a performance prior to the described performance to become familiar with the production.
Get more info: For more information and to sign up for training email Carol Ann Richman, Coordinator of Audio Description at firstname.lastname@example.org.
