We are proud to announce that many of our Linguistics students are part of the Department of Theatre's shadowed performance of As You Like It. ASL shadow-signed productions offer Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members the experience of theater without having to watch a sole interpreter on the side of the stage. Every speaking actor is shadowed by a signing actor and they are integrated seamlessly into the story.
This production opens April 17th.
This is the first time in USM's history there has been a shadowed performance like this. Actors and shadow actors have been working tirelessly to bring together this complex performance. Please come and cheer them on and experience a new form of accessible theater!
To purchase tickets, please go here or call the box office at 780-5151 (TTY: 780-5646).
