UCIS & CRT Collaborate to offer ASL interpreted theatrical performances this summer!

University of Connecticut Interpreting Services (UCIS), a division of the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD), is proud to announce their partnership with Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) to make the theatre experience more accessible! CRT’s Nutmeg Summer Series will feature 1776, Noises Off, and Disney’s Newsies – all of which will have a Saturday matinee performance interpreted into American Sign Language!


“We are very happy that we can offer the ASL interpreted performances this summer. We want all the members of our community to be able to enjoy the theatre.  This is a step to make that possible.” Matthew J. Pugliese, Nutmeg Summer Series’ Executive Producer


“The Center for Students with Disabilities, through UCIS, is pleased to partner with CRT to offer this public accessibility initiative to enhance our inclusive and accessible environment for the larger UConn community.” Donna M. Korbel, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Director of the Center for Students with Disabilities
