Beginning Cued Speech Class Taught in ASL, October 6-9!

September 27, 2016 in Community Events, Community News

 

 

Cue Camp Virginia is offering the adult Beginning Cued Speech taught in American Sign Language by Hilary Franklin, a NCSA*- Certified Instructor. Cued Speech is not a language; it is a finite system that you can learn in one weekend. See how manual cues combine with the mouth movements of spoken American English to visually represent all the sounds of the language. Cued Speech clearly and unambiguously shows all consonant and vowel sounds, as well as the rhythm, stress and prosody of spoken American English.

Discover how Cued Speech can enable your deaf/HoH child to access spoken language and literacy. Attend a fun-filled family learning weekend at Cue Camp Virginia. Connect with other families, professionals and deaf adults to learn about research documenting the many benefits of this phonemic system. Camp is October 6-9, 2016 (Columbus Day weekend) and is held at the beautiful Jamestown 4-H Educational Center on the James River in Williamsburg, VA. For more information, see the website of the Northern Virginia Cued Speech Association, www.nvcsa.org, and click on the Cue Camp 2016 tab at the top right.

ASL Interpreted “Comic Potential” by The McLean Community Players’ Sat. Oct. 22nd

September 15, 2016 in Community Events, Interpreting & Transliterating

 

 

The McLean Community Players’ production of “Comic Potential” will have ASL interpretation by First Chair Interpreted Productions, LLC.

Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016, at 8:00 p.m.
Alden Theatre in the McLean Community Center,
1234 Ingleside Ave.,
McLean, VA 22101.

Tickets are $18-$20. 
Please see the Accessibility page on MCP’s website (www.McLeanPlayers.org) for more details.

On one level, “Comic Potential” is a satire of the TV industry.  It is set slightly in the future, when everything has changed except human nature. Actors in a popular soap opera have been replaced by “Actoids”— android performers.  During the taping of the show, one of the “Actoids” begins to show signs of creativity. Is it a fault in her programming or is she humanizing? A young writer begins to teach her comic timing and physical comedy. Can their budding relationship blossom into real love or is it doomed to melt down? On a deeper level, “Comic Potential” explores what makes us human and the nature of love. “Comic Potential” contains adult language and situations and is most suitable for those 17 and older.
