NEW HAVEN >> Wilbur Cross High School senior Brianna Rigsbee has never experienced a viewing of a live theater performance.

That’s because she is legally blind.

But on Saturday, Rigsbee, 18, will have her chance to enjoy an audio description performance of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

“Youth with exceptional needs will no longer have feelings of isolation, they can create meaningful connections with their family, friends, and school community,” said Rigsbee’s mother, Angela Russell.

“And for the first time for most, they will able to follow a live performance and enjoy it for themselves,” said Russell.

The high school’s drama class is presenting the play at 7 p.m. from Thursday through Saturday. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Saturday’s performance will have a certified American Sign Language interpreter and audio descriptiopns for those with visual and hearing disabilities.

Creating Kids Connecticut Children’s Museum Director Sandra Malmquist said the inspiration for Saturday’s performance came from Rigsbee.

ASL Interpreted Musical: Lyle the Crocodile

Imagination Stage is proud to announce its ASL interpreted date for Lyle the Crocodile on Sunday, December 8, 2013  at 4:00 pm.  Lyle the Crocodile is a snappy new musical based on the Bernard Waber series of children’s books.  For more information about the performance or ordering tickets, please see below.

Lyle the Crocodile 
When the Primm family moves into their New York City apartment, they are quite surprised to find a crocodile in their bathtub! But Lyle is a rather extraordinary crocodile and quickly becomes part of the family. Unfortunately, a nasty neighbor, Mr. Grumps, has it out for the reptile. He thinks poor Lyle is unfit for the neighborhood simply because he’s different. After a parade, a trip to the department store, and a stint in the zoo, Lyle saves the day and earns his place as a beloved friend and neighbor.

Best for ages 4-12

Based on Lyle, Lyle Crocodile and The House on East 88th Street by Bernard Waber; Adapted by Kevin Kling; Music by Richard Gray; Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer.
