The UCLA Disability Studies Minor celebrates its 10-year anniversary with a presentation and discussion with DJ Kurs, the creative team and cast members of the five-time Tony-nominated musical Spring Awakening.
Spring Awakening was produced by Los Angeles-based Deaf West Theatre, which has been performing theatrical productions for 26 years. Its productions feature deaf and hearing actors working together in a ballet of movement, with both American Sign Language and spoken English. Through both panel discussion and performance, this event will highlight ‘How ASL Musicals are Stretching the Boundaries of the Musical’. UCLA student musicians and singers will join with Broadway and local actors to perform musical numbers from the show.
The event is free and open to the public. It will be audio described, real-time captioned, and ASL translated.
