Edmonds Center for the Arts
Accessibility Information

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) strives to be welcoming and accessible, with a commitment to ensure that all patrons can enjoy and engage with the performing arts. ECA meets all Americans with Disability Act (ADA) requirements. Our goal, however, is to be more than simply an accessible facility. Please see a list of ECA’s current accessibility accommodations below.

If you have a specific question or would like to request an accommodation be considered, please contact Gillian Jones, Director of Programming, at gillian@ec4arts.org or 425.275.9483. ECA staff and volunteers are also available to answer questions and provide assistance at performances. To purchase tickets, please call the ECA Box Office at 425.275.9595 or visit us in person at
410 4th Ave N, Edmonds, WA.

Patrons with Mobility Disabilities
All performances

ECA offers disability parking along the north side of the building. Guests are always welcome to drop-off and pick-up guests directly at the front doors of ECA at 410 Fourth Avenue N.

Wheelchair & Accessible Seating
ECA’s seating charts indicate accessible seating, as well as seats that have movable arm rests. These seats allow for a choice in view and ticket price. The Box Office will make every attempt to seat up to three companions in adjacent or nearby seats.

Elevator Access
ECA’s theatre has two levels, the second of which is accessible by elevator.

Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are located on the main and second levels.

Courtesy Wheelchair
A wheelchair is available free-of-charge on a first-come, first-served basis for transport use at ECA. Patrons may borrow the courtesy wheelchair from the Box Office inside the main entrance.

Patrons who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing

Assistive Listening System
All performances
ECA’s Assistive Listening System uses microphones, IR (infrared) transmitters and receivers that enhance words spoken on stage by separating speech from the background noise. This system amplifies performers and brings the sound directly into patrons' ears. The receivers can be coupled with headphones, ear buds or a neck loop (for patrons using a hearing aid with a "T" switch) and may be borrowed from the ECA Box Office. Identification is required to borrow ECA equipment.

ASL Interpretation
ECA Education Matinees and select ECA Presented events, by prior request
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, by certified interpreters, is available upon request at all ECA Education Matinee performances and select ECA Presented events. It is ECA’s policy that ASL interpreters stand on the floor on house left of the orchestra level. Please note that requests for ASL interpretation must be received by ECA at least 3 weeks prior to a performance.

CART Captioning
Select ECA Presented events
Whether you just miss a single word or you have hearing loss too severe to benefit from assistive listening devices, CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation)Captioning can keep you from missing out. Select ECA Presented performances will be captioned, with iPads available to patrons making use of this accommodation. Please note that requests for CART Captioning must be received by ECA at least 3 weeks prior to a performance.

Patrons who are Blind or have Low Vision
All performances, by prior request

Large Print Materials
Large print programs are available upon request in hard copy at the ECA Box Office, or in advance digitally. These materials are provided free of charge.

Service Animals
Service animals are welcome inside the ECA building and must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times. If you intend to bring a service animal to an event, please notify your ticket representative at the time of purchase so that an appropriate seat may be reserved for you. The nearest green space for walking service animals is ECA’s south lawn along Daley St.
