UTRID (The Utah Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf) Student Involvement Committee is presenting a workshop for those interested in providing American Sign Language interpretation for theatre. This workshop is geared toward ASL Interpreting Students, but all interpreters are welcome. UTRID membership is required for attendance. Join UTRID at www.utrid.com.
Theatre interpreting is unlike any other style. It requires a unique blend of preparation and flexibility, an intense use of role shifting and facial expressions, and a flare of theatricality. Participants will learn the basics of preparing to interpret a play, then stay for the show to observe these principles in practice. Come learn the ins and outs of this amazing genre, and how to step into the spotlight without stealing the show.
