Access Services

The Kentucky Center is committed to providing access to live entertainment for everyone. Our Access Services Program offers services for Kentucky Center performances as well as for performances on our stages presented by our partnering arts groups and at other organizations such as Actors Theatre of Louisville and the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival.  Contact the Access Services Hotline at (502) 566-5111 (V) or (502) 566-5140 (TTY) or email Access Services.

At the Kentucky Center, Access Services oversees ensuring that our facilities and programming is accessible to everyone by providing assistive listening devices, audio description, captioning, sign language interpreters, and large print programs for events and activities at the Kentucky Center and Brown Theatre.
