Electronic Devices

Please remember to switch off all watches and cell phones during the performance.

Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy

While we rarely cancel a performance due to inclement weather, the safety of our patrons, casts, and staff is very important to us. If we make the decision to cancel a performance, we will attempt to contact all ticket holders in advance of the announced start time.


Please check back for further information about internships.

Late Arrival

We make every effort to begin our performances on time. In consideration of our actors and other audience members, latecomers will be seated at the discretion of the management.

Length of Performance

Performance times vary from show to show.


As of this writing we do not have a permanent building for New York Deaf Theatre (unless you want to donate a performance space hint hint!). We rent out multiple venues throughout the year for our workshops and productions, so please check your tickets carefully when purchasing to confirm the location of your performance.
