How it works:

Once you have taken your seat in the auditorium, open the BURGTHEATER PROMPT app, which will guide you through the following steps: Set your phone to airplane mode and activate the Wi-Fi button. BURGTHEATER prompt will automatically connect to our app network: LIBRBURG. If your smartphone does not support automatic Wi-Fi connections, please manually select the LIBRBURG network in your settings. Then all you need to do is choose a language for the surtitles, and voilà!


If you have a few minutes before the performance begins, you could also sign up for our newsletter or read some background information about the play on the app. Shortly before the performance is set to begin, the app will show a countdown. Now hold your phone sideways! The surtitles will be displayed in a white font on a black background so as not to disturb the people around you.


We hope you have an exciting and stimulating accessible theatre experience!
