SF Production of "Wait Until Dark" Starring Actors with Disabilities


One of ILRCSF's community partners needs our help! We would love to see everyone support this amazing show by San Francisco's first fully-integrated theatre company.

Circle of Life Theatre's inaugural production of "Wait Until Dark" starring actors with disabilities just earned a great review in SF Weekly! The future viability of this mixed-ability theatre company depends entirely on how many people see this particular show. To ensure success, they are offering 3-for-1 tickets this week. Purchase tickets here & select code 341 when checking out to pay just $35 for three tickets.  

Alternatively, any disabled patron, senior, or student may enjoy the show for just $20 if you coming to the show solo. Very large groups may request an even better rate by calling Fritz directly at 415.385.5055.


The remaining shows run from Thursday, Sept. 11 through the 21st - Th, Fri, Sat. nights at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. at Victoria Theatre, located at 2961 16th St. (at Mission).  



Audio description for nearly twenty patrons is available at each show - advance notice and early arrival are appreciated. All other disabilities cheerfully accommodated by advance request.  Seats have been removed to allow for additional, well-located wheelchair seating, with other dedicated, proximate companion seats and room for service dogs.  Patrons with disabilities should call Fritz at 415.385.5055 at least 24 hours in advance of show date so they may provide the very best accommodation and a most enjoyable theatre experience.  Thank you!!!
