WASHINGTON TERRACE — Signing Time arrives at Bonneville High School for a show that includes music and American Sign Language for children of all abilities.
The show is at 3:30 p.m. Friday, June 22, at the school, 251 E. Laker Way.
Signing Time started as a series of videos that Los Angeles-based folk singer Rachel Coleman and her sister created when Coleman’s daughter was born profoundly deaf. Her second daughter, Lucy, was born with spina bifida and cerebral palsy, and also had communication difficulties that the songs and videos helped.
The music-with-sign-language children’s videos showed on many PBS stations for a number of years. Coleman was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2008. She now travels with the shows, teaching the deaf and those with communications problems, as well as opening the world of ASL to their friends and family, with her program.
Tickets are $10, $7 for age 12 and younger. VIP tickets are $20. Tickets are available in advance at www.signingtimefoundation.org/webercounty.
