    EMU student assistants are available starting one hour before performances begin to assist patrons in getting from the front of the building to the theatre. Once at the theatre, Access Ushers are available to assist patrons to their seats.

Staff, volunteers and ushers are not able to assist patrons in transferring to or from a wheelchair, theatre seat or vehicle; operate motorized mobility aids such as scooters and Segways; or to provide personal attendant services such as assisting patrons in the restroom, with taking medications, or with similar activities.
