Cleveland Signstage Theatre presents Matilda at Kean University
UNION, N.J. – Cleveland Signstage Theatre will present its unique deaf-theatre adaptation of Matilda, the best-selling children’s book by Roald Dahl, in simultaneous spoken English and American Sign Language, on Friday, April 23, at 7 p.m., Kean University’s Wilkins Theatre, 1000 Morris Avenue, Union, N.J.
Matilda is the classic story of an exceptionally bright young
girl, who discovers she has supernatural talents that she uses to punish
her corrupt parents and contend with Miss Trunchbull, the intimidating
headmistress of her school. Combining the richness of theatrical spoken
word with the beauty of American Sign Language and mime, this play will
engage all audiences while providing a theatre experience that encourages
sensitivity to diversity.
Tickets are $15 for the public; $11 for seniors and alumni; and $9 for students and children. Black-and-white and color photographs are available upon request. For further information, to order tickets, or request a brochure, call the Wilkins Theatre Box Office at 908-737-SHOW (7469).
