Shakespeare in Rochester

NTID will be bringing Shakespeare to the Highland Bowl Amphitheater in Rochester, New York starting this Saturday (July 5). The Rochester Community Players will perform A Midsummer Night's Dream featuring RIT's National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) theater community. This is not an interpreted performance, it is a simultaneous performance, NTID theater instructor Luane Davis Haggerty tells the Democrat & Crhonicle. "Each actor has their own character, but they are performing a single role in agreement. One actor (the voice actor) plays the role as you would expect and the other (signing) actor plays the subtext, the hidden emotion or the inner conflict." Read more here.
