Dad’s Garage Theatre will be offering an American Sign Language-translated (ASL) performance of its long-running improvised soap opera, SCANDAL.
Now in its 15th(ish) season, SCANDAL is one of the theater company’s most popular shows, according to program materials. Each season takes place in a new setting – space station, strip club, ski resort – and this year’s melodrama takes place in a church. Sorry it wasn’t alliterative this time.
Founded in 1995 as a small, volunteer-led organization, Dad’s Garage has grown to a thriving mid-size theatre led by professional artistic and administrative staff including 300 volunteers and performers, according to theatre materials. Dad’s artists entertain approximately 33,000 people each year both in the city and abroad. In addition to their original productions, the theatre produces improv shows, reaches out to high school students through improv programs and facilitates classes and workshops for the general public.
Dad’s strives to make the theater accessible for the entire community, according to program materials. The ASL-translated show will be Saturday, Feb. 23 at 8 p.m. Those with hearing impairments will be given priority seating in a designated area closest to the translator.
