When a deaf person views a play, their vision is drawn to the interpreter off stage making it hard to follow the actions of the play. But for the first time ever in Central New York, that won’t be the case. The OCC Players Spring Play, “Harvey” by Mary Chase, will present the first ever shadow signing performance in Syracuse. Interpreters will sign on-stage right alongside the actors themselves so a deaf person won’t need to split their attention to enjoy a show. All shadow signing will be done by Third Eye Interpreters for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community.
This groundbreaking performance for Central New York will be held Saturday, April 28th with a matinee showing at 2 p.m. In addition, the OCC Players will be doing 3 other performances that are listed below.
- April 27th – 11:30 a.m. & 8 p.m.
- April 28th – 2 p.m. & 8 p.m.
Come enjoy the timeless tale that will make you think about the lines between reality and illusion.
