Wheelock Family Theatre is a professional, non-profit theatre associated with Actor’s Equity, the union of professional actors and stage managers. Located on the campus of Wheelock College, Wheelock Family Theatre seeks to improve the lives of children and families through the shared experience of live theatre.
Since 1981, Wheelock Family Theatre has interpreted every production in American Sign Language for patrons who are deaf. WFT was one of the first theatres in the country to audio-describe productions for patrons who are blind and the first to open caption all performances for patrons who are hard of hearing. WFT was instrumental in introducing these services and new technologies to other professional theatres in Boston. Access is not limited to our audiences—actors who are blind, deaf, and physically disabled are given unprecedented performance opportunities on our stage.
