Tomorrow’s ASL Interpreted Productions at Imagination Stage

January 12, 2013 in Community Calendar

Imagination Stage Presents:
Wake Up, Brother Bear!
The My First Imagination Stage theatre series offers intimate, interactive performances designed for the very young.  Watch as Brother and Sister Bear experience a full year of glorious seasons. Together we see a waterfall melt, meet a butterfly, chase an elusive fish, and skate on an icy pond. Children are invited to join the action with a small bag of props that help create magical moments. Ages 1-5.

ASL Interpreted Performance: January 12th at 11:45am

 Anime Momotaro

An old couple in ancient Japan long for a child. They have their wish granted when a huge peach floats down the river and breaks open to reveal a baby boy. They name him Momotaro, and he grows up to be the strongest young man in all of Japan. But Momotaro’s village has a tiny problem…GIANT OGRES! Ogres have been bullying the villagers for years, and Momotaro decides he must make a stand. With the help of friends-the dog Inu, the monkey Saru, and the bird Kiji-Momotaro meets his foes face-to-face. Performed in the style of popular anime cartoons with traditional Japanese influences, this action-packed staging of Japan’s most famous folktale teaches powerful lessons about inner strength and how creativity, kindness, and cooperation win out over brute force. Best for ages 5-10.

ASL Interpreted Performance: February 17th at 4:00pm

Additional ASL Performance of Seussical at Imagination Stage on December 23 at 4 pm

There will be an additional ASL interpreted performance of Seussical on Sunday, December 23rd at 4pm at Imagination Stage.  There are still tickets available.

About Seussical
Our story begins in the land of Nool, where we find Horton the Elephant, alone by the pool.  All of a sudden, a small speck floats on by.  Horton can’t see a thing but hears a small cry.  Upon that small speck is the home of the Whos and one boy named JoJo who breaks all the rules.  “This speck is a World!” Horton proclaims.  But no one believes him, they all call him names.  Gertrude McFuzz follows behind without fail, in hopes he’ll notice her and her one feathered tail.  The peak of our tale is when the Whos must be heard!  Their fate lies with JoJo and one brand new word.  This enchanting musical adventure will transport you to a world where “a person’s a person, no matter how small’ and most importantly, anything’s possible.

ASL Interpreted Performance: December 23rd at 4:00pm
