Colorado Family-Friendly Theater from The Arvada Center || ASL-Interpreted "1940's Radio Hour"

by Lisa Girard
(Arvada Center, Arvada, CO)

On December 16, 2011 at 7:30pm the Arvada Center will present an shadowed-ASL-interpreted production of "The 1940's Radio Hour" family-friendly theatrical production.

Shadow-interpreted theater utilizes specially trained American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters to perform as “shadows” on stage alongside actors. Shadow theater marries sign language with choreographed movement, allowing the sign language to become a seamless part of the theater experience.

In this way, audience members who are deaf, hard of hearing or language delayed can simultaneously see and “hear” the complete theater performance in the same way as hearing audiences. Shadow theater is also enjoyed by hearing audiences as an innovative art form and educational opportunity.

Similar to watching a film with subtitles, viewers benefit from a rich bilingual experience and gain an appreciation for another language.

"The 1940's Radio Hour"
Written by Walton Jones
Directed by Bev Newcomb-Madden

It’s Christmastime in 1942. On a cold and snowy evening in New York, a close-knit group of entertainers at the WOV radio station—all heading somewhere else—are broadcasting the final holiday variety show for the troops overseas.

Patriotic, sentimental, and overwhelmingly nostalgic, this holiday production—with songs including "Strike Up the Band", "I’ll Be Seeing You", and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" — is reminiscent of an era long since passed but never completely forgotten.

Hope you can join us for this very special production!

We'll even make it easier to share our special event with your network of individuals and families.
