Written by Nicki Runge to honor a cherished DVD of “Sign Me A Story” this stage production takes inspiration from three classic children’s stories. Both hearing and deaf children will enjoy watching a combination of stage and film performances of updated versions of beloved story favorites such as "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?", "You're Missing It!" and "Goldilocks and The Three Bears".  Presented in American Sign Language and spoken English, children also get the opportunity to learn the introductory foundations of sign language. In this production, live actors perform in front of a film screen. It's a high-spirited production including two familiar stories that promote self-esteem, inclusiveness, and, above all, communication. PLUS a new story for parents to learn too. Nicki Runge, Founder and Artistic Director of ImaginASL Performing Arts will direct. ImaginASL Performing Arts is a non-profit organization that strives to entertain, educate, and unite the Deaf and hearing worlds with rich unique artistic, cultural, and theatrical experiences full of American Sign Language. Partnering with Northglenn Arts for the new production of 2020.
