The State Theatre Regional Arts Center at New Brunswick (STRACANB) does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to the State Theatre, treatment of or employment in, its services, programs or activities.
Upon request, accommodation will be provided to allow individuals with disabilities to participate in the State Theatre services, programs and activities. STRACANB has a designated coordinator to facilitate compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as required by Section 35.107 of the U.S. Department of Justice regulations, and to coordinate compliance with Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
While the above laws mandate equal access to people with disabilities, the STRACANB makes it a priority to establish a work place and environment that embraces the spirit of the law ensuring an optimal experience for all. Upon request, information will be made available in alternative formats such as Braille, large print, audiotape, computer disc, or via the State Theatre’s website. The State Theatre’s accessibility policy and appropriate access symbols are listed in all publications.
STRACANB understands the physical limitations of the State Theatre. Along with its parent organization, the New Brunswick Cultural Center (NBCC), STRACANB is committed to addressing the facility’s needs to eliminate physical barriers inside the venue through long term planning. This effort, combined with an ongoing array of services, has established the State Theatre as a venue to be enjoyed by all audiences.
