Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s Access Program creates opportunities for people to participate in the theater who otherwise would not be able to do so. The goal of expanding access is pursued in the following ways:
Through the Access Program, the Festival is able to offer an inclusive cultural experience to the broader Idaho community of the Deaf and Hard-of-hearing; provide an enriching and enjoyable outing for elderly citizens living with few means and often without family support; offer an educational, socializing experience for children in the juvenile corrections system; and engage newly arrived refugees with the language and culture of their new home. All of these groups and more have participated in the Access Program. We look forward to many future successes through this program.
