Entry and Exit
Accessible parking is located on each side of and behind the Alan Jay Wildstein Center. A covered drop-off area, with curbside assistance, is available one hour prior to performances in the Wildstein Center. Golf cart transport from the parking lots to the theater is available before Wildstein Center performances.
For performances at the University Center, accessible parking is in front of the building.
Patrons with Mobility Disabilities
All theaters have wheelchair and scooter-accessible loca-tions where patrons can remain in their mobility devices or transfer to theater seats. Patrons who cannot or do not wish to transfer from their wheelchairs to a theater seat should request wheelchair-accessible locations when ordering tickets. Seats with removable armrests are available in both venues for patrons who wish to transfer to theater seats. Bariatric chairs are available in the Wildstein Center with advance notice. Wheelchair-accessible seating and wheelchair companion seating may be purchased by phone, in person, and online. For personal assistance selecting accessible seats or for more information about accessibility for a person with a disability, please contact the box office at 863-784-7178 or send an email to: email@example.com.
A courtesy manual wheelchair is available for patrons free of charge when you arrive at either venue. See the house manager for assistance.
It is strongly recommended that patrons who do not normally use a wheelchair bring a friend or companion to assist them in maneuvering the wheelchair.
Elevator access to the orchestra and balcony is located in the center of the main lobby of the Wildstein Center.
Patrons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Assistive listening devices are available at the concession stand in the Wildstein Center. There is no charge, however, a driver’s license or a state ID is required as a deposit. The Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts is equipped with a Starkey Hearing Technologies Surflink Media Device. It provides High Fidelity Sound by streaming performances directly into your Starkey Hearing Instruments. Not compatible with other hearing devices.
Sign language translation services are available upon request.
Patrons who are Blind or Have Low Vision
Large print and Braille programs are available for patrons attending events at South Florida State College. Please call 863-784-7287 at least five business days prior to a performance to make arrangements
Patrons with Service Animals
If you or someone in your party plans to attend an event with a service animal, please notify box office personnel when purchasing your tickets so that we may make every effort to arrange for an aisle seat or other seat that can accommodate you and your service animal.
Service animals are generally dogs that are individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities, including physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or mental disabilities. Service animals may perform tasks such as guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling wheelchairs, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, or helping persons with psychiatric and neurological disabilities by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler’s disability.
For additional information or if you have questions, need assistance, or an accommodation not mentioned below, please call 863-784-7287.
