Big River Show with Deaf Actors – DFW
DATE: January 26-29, 2012
TIME: 7:00 pm
1071 W. Turner Warnell Rd.
On January 26-29, Summit Theatre will open the musical Big River. This
piece is a musical adaptation of Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn, and the school will collaborate with both the Summit Band and the
American Sign Language Department at Ben Barber Career Tech Academy.
Big River has a history of being produced on Broadway by deaf actors.
This year, Summit decided to have hearing student actors play the
speaking roles, and they will be shadowed by both professional and
student interpreters from Ben Barber. The Summit Band will also be
providing Summit, for the first time, with a live orchestra.
We are also showcasing our International Thespian Society National
Qualifying student designs for costumes and set.
