Touch Tours and Readings for the Blind

Everyman has partnered with the Maryland State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped for several years.  Each season, Everyman Theatre hosts what is known as a “touch tour” of a given production. This tour allows patrons of the Library for the Blind to touch and explore various aspects of the set, sound, and costume design for the show. Throughout the season, Everyman also brings cast members from selected plays to read scenes at the Library. Everyman also offers audio described performances of all productions.  Patrons may request audio description on a given date by calling the box office during normal business hours.
