Subject to availability, we offer companion seating, allowing the Support Person to sit next to or in very close proximity to a patron requiring accessible seating. Please be prepared to show proof of a valid Access 2 Card when purchasing tickets, picking up tickets from the Isabel Box Office, or when entering the event. Tickets must be purchased by the Access 2 cardholder. Both the cardholder and Support Person must attend the event together. 

Any persons with a permanent disability who require a Support Person when attending the Isabel is eligible for the Access 2 Card if they meet certain minimal criteria. For information about the program, patrons may go to the Access 2 Program website located at
