Let us make your experience as easy and rewarding as possible

We want your time at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts to be comfortable and satisfying. That’s why we offer a variety of services to improve your visit.

Website Accessibility

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is committed to ensuring that individuals with disabilities enjoy full access to our websites.  In recognition of this commitment, we are in the process of making modifications to increase the accessibility and usability of this website, using the relevant portions of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) as our standard.  Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing.  If, at any time, you have difficulty using this website, or with a particular web page or function on this site, please contact us by phone 954-468-3305, or through Broward Center’s ticketing partner’s line at 800.359.2525(TTY) or​ email and we will make all reasonable efforts to assist you.

Theater Access

Our facilities feature ADA-approved signage, handrails and automatic door openers.

The Wayne and Marti Huizenga Family Skywalk connects the Arts & Entertainment Parking Garage with the Horvitz Lobby in The Au-Rene Theater. The skywalk entrance provides protection from the elements and easy access for patrons with disabilities.

A second entry is located at the bottom of the driveway entrance, immediately across from the Arts & Entertainment Parking Garage.

Patrons with limited mobility may be dropped off in front of the Au-Rene and Amaturo Theaters via the front driveway. The drop off point allows for access to all event and meeting spaces.

Service Animals

Service animals as defined by the American with Disabilities Act are permitted into the theaters and must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times.

A service animal must sit under the guest’s seat or at his/her feet.

Service animals are not permitted to sit in the aisle or on seats.

A guest whose service animal poses a threat to the safety of other Broward Center guests and/or staff may be asked to escort the animal off the premises.

Special Seating

Accessible seating is available and can be limited. We encourage you to order early and to specifically request seating for wheelchair access, easy access transfer or swing arm seats, sign-interpreted, audio described or open-captioned performances when placing your order.

Accessible seating may be purchased by calling Telephone: 954.462.0222 or 800.359.2525(TTY). Wheelchair seating may also be purchased on line at browardcenter.org. Look for the Request Accessible Tickets button on the event purchase page.

Wheelchair/Accessible Ticketing Policy

It is prohibited for anyone, other than those requiring the accessible features of a seat or that of a guest's companion to use accessible seating locations (unless the area has been released for general seating). Those purchasing wheelchair accessible seating may purchase one (1) wheelchair accessible seat and up to three (3) companion seats; any additional seats must be purchased in the regular seating areas. This policy ensures that we are able to accommodate all available and accessible wheelchair seats in our theaters.
