The Little Theatre of the Deaf performs for everyone in Sign Language and the spoken word. You SEE and HEAR every word. STORIES IN MY POCKET TOO, a 50-minute program filled with stories, fables, signing fun and interactive improvisation. We begin with a sign language warm-up that actually uses ropes to teach sign language! For those who know sign language, it is fun to guess what we'll come up with next. For those who do not, it is a fun and memorable way to learn. We have six large, colorful pockets on stage. Each pocket contains a theme. And we ask the audience to choose a pocket and we perform what they've picked. What will be in the orange pocket? Will it be signing fun, or fables? Whichever pocket is chosen, we will entertain, educate and enrapture. Included in our educational/outreach partnership, our LEARN AND STUDY TOGETHER GUIDE provides teachers with material about the performance, exercises and activities to do in the classroom pre and post-performance.
