Broadway On Demand will stream the 2022 National Deaf High School Theatre Festival (NDHSTF) March 12 at 8 PM ET.
The NDHSTF gives young Deaf performers the ability to perform on a national stage, refine their skills through competition and feedback, use American Sign Language as their medium for acting, experience professional theatre in an accessible language, and socialize with like-minded Deaf peers.
The Festival will be both virtual and in-person, taking place as previously reported March 10-13. The in-person festival will be held at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind in Salt Lake City.
The 2022 National Deaf High School Theatre Festival will feature students from over 10 schools across the country, including American School for the Deaf, Arkansas School for the Deaf, Berkmar High School, Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf, Montana School for the Deaf & Blind, Oklahoma School for the Deaf, Rocky Mountain Deaf School, School of the Arts at Central Gwinnett High School, Texas School for the Deaf, and Utah School for the Deaf and Blind.
Instructors and guest performers for the 2022 National Deaf High School Theatre Festival include Zain Ahmed, Shiann Cook, Tyler Fortson, Harold Foxx, Natasha Ofili, Fred Beam, Lateefah Patterson, and David Kurs.
The festival is presented in partnership with Deaf West Theatre, Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind, and the National Technical Institute for the Deaf Sunshine 2.0.
