Assisted Listening Devices

Corn Stock Theatre offers assisted listening devices for patrons to better hear and understand the dialogue and music of our productions. Patrons are loaned a small receiver, about the size of a transistor radio or a mic pack, and an earpiece. A transmitter works through the theater’s sound board to deliver the actors’ voices to the patron’s ear, bypassing background noises and other interference. A driver’s license or other ID is required to check out a listening device, and is returned to the Patron when the receiver is returned to the Box Office at the end of the show. Please inform the Box Office when you arrive if you’d like to use the assisted listening device.

Ticket Exchanges

Ticket exchanges will be subject to a $2 fee per ticket at the time of the exchange.  Seating is subject to availability, and not guaranteed.
