Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

A group of students went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at N.T.I.D. on April 28th.  The actors signed the whole play and hearing actors interpreted.  Students were each asked to write down three differences between Deaf and hearing plays.  Here are some of their responses:

  • “They all were Deaf and they had an interpreter”
  • “It was different.  Cause the people in the play was signing.”
  • “There were subtitles”
  • “Intermission” -The play started late and the intermission lasted twice as long as they stated it would.  Deaf people like to chat and catch up.
