For some performances, it is possible to raise the lift to Stage height for additional staging. However, this has implications for lighting and audio and must be approved by the Supervisor, Technical Services. Additional costs apply to raise the lift to stage level.

Access 2 Entertainment & CNIB

A brief explanation of Access 2 Entertainment (Access 2) from their website: “Participating venues grant one free admission for the support person while the person with the disability pays the regular admission fee. This helps ensure all individuals receive the support they need to participate fully in entertainment, recreational and cultural opportunities.” Visit the Access 2 website for more details.

The CNIB card program works similarly to Access 2 – the card-holder pays for their ticket, and the sighted guide receives a complimentary ticket. Visit the CNIB card webpage for more info.

River Run Centre accepts Access 2 Entertainment and CNIB cards. Indicate whether you would like to honour these programs for your event(s) as well.
