Accessibility at Pen Pals
Friends of HCL strives to make our Pen Pals lectures accessible to all patrons. Below is a description of available services and amenities. Please call our box office (612-543-8112) with questions.
Open Captioning: Open Captioning (OC) is a service for people with hearing loss that uses a text display to provide a simultaneous translation of spoken text and any additional sounds during a live performance. The service is open to everyone for viewing without any special equipment needed by the audience member. For all Pen Pals lectures, an open captioning screen will be located on the right-hand side of the main floor.
Assistive Listening Devices: Assistive Listening Devices amplify and clarify sound by cutting down ambient noise, and may be used from any seat at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Devices, headphones, and earbuds may be borrowed from the Pen Pals box office at all Pen Pals lectures.
Seating: Accessible and companion seating can be reserved on the main floor and balcony levels of Hopkins Center for the Arts. Please call our box office directly to purchase accessible and companion seating.
Parking: Accessible parking is available at the rear of Hopkins Center for the Arts and on the street level of the public parking ramp. Please visit the Hopkins Center for the Arts website for more detailed parking information.
All Pen Pals programs are held at the Hopkins Center for the Arts—offering great sound and sight lines for the entire house. Just 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis and 28 minutes from Saint Paul, Hopkins Center for the Arts offers free convenient parking as well as numerous nearby restaurants.
