CaptionsOnTour™ is a fantastic initiative created by The Captioning Studio where a travelling theatre production tours not only the show but also theatre captions at every venue on the tour!
CaptionsOnTour™ brings captions to regional areas and to new venues, providing captioning access to more and more audiences.
The inaugural CaptionsOnTour™ in 2007 saw Andrew McKinnon Presentation’s production of ‘Dickens’ Women’, starring British actress Miriam Margolyes, captioned in all 12 venues on its tour! This initiative was awarded the 2008 Best New Captioning Initiative Award (Highly Commended) in Australia.
It is believed that this is the first time in the world that a production has offered captioned performances in every venue on its tour!
We are planning to offer more CaptionsOnTour™ productions, so please keep an eye on our website www.theatrecaptioning.com.aufor more information!
