Accessibility at Our Centers


Wheelchair Accessible Entrances And Seating

The Ware and Winter Centers are fully accessible facilities. As you purchase your tickets, please let the Box Office know of any specific seating requests. The Box Office will work with you to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience. 


The main entrances of the Centers are equipped with power doors. Each of our venues has accessible entrances. The usher staff will assist in directing you to the accessible entrance closest to your seats. 


At the Ware Center, there is an elevator, located just beyond the front desk, which will allow you to access the lower level of the center (LL2), taking you to the front of Steinman Hall. The Box Office staff can help you in selecting seating that best meets your individual needs.


Both Centers provide convenient loading/unloading areas on a first come, first served basis.  At the Ware Center, the loading zone area provides a convenient area to drop off and pick up passengers.  Nearby parking lots/garages are available for paid parking during your stay. Discount vouchers are available at the front desk.  At the Winter Center, a drop off/pick up area is available in front of the main entrance. Designated parking spaces for vehicles with valid state disability parking permits are available adjacent to the center. Parking spaces are available on a first-come basis. 

Accessible Restrooms

All restrooms in both Centers are wheelchair accessible. They are conveniently located off the main lobbies. 

Courtesy Wheelchair

Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive listening devices are available free of charge for the Ware Center's Steinman Hall and the Winter Center's Biemesderfer Concert Hall and Clair Performance Hall. Upon request, a portable system can be made available to you by checking in at the box office before the performance.  The device may be used with or without a hearing aid from any seat in the named venue. To obtain the device and headset, please contact an usher prior to being seated at your performance or film.  A driver’s license will be held as a security deposit, then exchanged for the equipment at its return at the conclusion of the performance.  To request an assisted listening device in advance, please contact the Box Office at 717-871-7600.
