What We Offer

For NZSL interpreted performances a trained interpreter, situated on the side or centre of the stage, interprets the dialogue during the performance using New Zealand Sign Language. The actors perform in spoken English while the interpreter performs a translation of the songs and dialogue.

NZSL interpretation allows the whole audience, both Deaf and hearing, to enjoy the show in their preferred language. The Tim Bray Theatre Company was the first theatre company in New Zealand to offer NZSL interpreted performance, and we have welcomed Deaf children and their families to enjoy the magic of theatre since 2004.

We also offer an NZSL interpreted Deaf Stage Experience at no additional cost for some shows and usually for Deaf school groups. Before, or after the show, Deaf children and their teachers and caregivers are invited to meet the actors, ask questions, or join us on stage to explore the props, set, costumes, instruments, and more.
