Laguna Playhouse is pleased to be able to offer Open Caption at some performances.

Our Open Caption screen will be located on stage left, and a block of seats will be reserved specifically to accommodate our open caption patrons.

Currently, there are no scheduled Open Caption dates. Please check back for added shows.
