The audience will not only meet some old friends from Lewis Carroll's beloved classic, but also be entertained by short folktales from different countries in the region.  Distinguished by a unique theatre style combining American Sign Language with the spoken word, The Little Theatre of the Deaf performance unfolds in these two languages creating a new dramatic form.  As stories are woven and sculpted out of the air, pictures are created and vivid images imprint the mind. 

This performance is one you don't want to miss!
