ADA Accessibility

Patrons with limited mobility may gain access to Bailey Hall through the entrance to the lower lobby at the southwest corner of the building (to the left of the main doors as you face Bailey Hall from the plaza). There is an elevator in the lobby for patrons’ use. A small lift in the auditorium may be used to transfer guests to and from the orchestra level.

There are hearing assist devices available though the Box Office. There is no charge for the use of these devices, however, some form of collateral is required during pick up to ensure the unit's safe return to the Box Office.
