My name is Fernando and I work as an ASL consultant for the University of Connecticut Interpreting Services (UCIS) in their collaboration with the Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) to provide interpreted theatrical performances. The third and final performance of the summer season, “Newsies”, is occurring right now and will be interpreted on Saturday, July 15th at 2:00. The interpreters for this show will be Julie Pond and Jon Henry, with myself as the consultant.
“Newsies” is a show inspired by the “Newsboy Strike of 1899” and includes themes of social justice and exploitative labor. During this show you will watch the newsboys as they journey towards finding their voice and standing up for themselves! I will not tell you how it ends; you will need to come see it for yourself!
If you are interested in purchasing tickets to the interpreted performance of this show, please contact CRT’s box office. You may call them at (860) 486-2113 and request tickets in the “interpreted section” or purchase silver or bronze seats online, and then send an email to the box office at CRTBoxOffice@uconn.edu and you will be placed in the reserved ASL priority seats. I suggest you contact them at your earliest convenience to guarantee a seat for yourself!
It might be a good idea to get to the theatre early, as well. This will give you ample time to find your seat, to socialize with other patrons, and to check out the lobby video. This is a video with safety instructions and theatre announcements presented in ASL.
We look forward to seeing you there on Saturday, July 15th at 2:00 PM!
