Is the Black Hills Playhouse handicapped accessible?
Yes! Please let us help you with any special needs or accommodations you might need. Call the BHP Box Office at 605 255-4141 to discuss how we can help. Our historic site has some challenges but with advance planning and notice, we will do our best to make our guests with special needs feel welcome and comfortable during their visit.
About the Weather
The weather may have impact on your visit. Visitors have to go outside to get to the restrooms and the Snack Bar. Summer at the BHP is fickle. The elevation is nearly a mile high, so days are often hot, but the temperature drops dramatically the minute the sun goes down. Rain is common in the afternoons and evenings, especially in June. Be prepared for quick weather changes.
Bathrooms are located outside of the main theater -- men's on the north side (to the left of the main entrance if you are facing the building, around the side), women's on the south (to the right of the main entrance if you are facing the building, around the side). Please don't hesitate to ask staff for assistance, or for help getting to and from the restrooms if needed.
Please let our car parks know that you have a person with special needs when you arrive. They will direct you to our most accessible parking near the theater.
Snack bar & business office
The snack bar is the first building you encounter when you enter the site -- it is also connected to the business office which is on the WEST side of the building. There is a handicapped-accessible entrance with a ramp. Please don't hesitate to ask staff if you need help securing concessions.
Wheelchair, walker, and scooter accessibility
The theatre has wheelchair-accessible and handicapped-accessible seats. We do our best to seat companions close to the person with special needs if at all possible. Companions of people with special needs and drivers may ask for complimentary tickets through our box office.
