DASI: Descriptive Audio for the Sight Impaired

of Western North Carolina



Events and Venues

DASI has described at many theaters and venues in WNC. We are portable, so we can take our equipment and provide AD at any theater that requests our services. We have a standing agreement with Asheville Community Theater (ACT) to describe the second weekend of Mainstage performances. ACT generously offers a complimentary ticket to the driver for a visually impaired person attending a DASI described performance. If there is an event not listed below that you would like to have described, contact the theater and ask them to provide AD through DASI. If you would like a ride to a described event, please contact Leslie Stephens at 828-628-3549.
