The Janesville Performing Arts Center is excited to offer an entertaining experience featuring American Sign Language (ASL). A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain's cabin, which contains precious, otherworldly cargo. When the ship is taken over by pirates - led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own - the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. The production is directed by Joshua Castille, a Deaf performance artist based out of Los Angeles, California. He has worked on various projects in different roles including ASL master, director, actor, set designer, and more. Josh has performed at the Tony Awards, worked alongside Marlee Matlin, and is featured in many TV shows including Accused and Switched at Birth.
The performance will be Deaf-Lead and accessible in ASL and English. One of the performances will be Audio Described so Blind & Low Vision folks can enjoy the production as well. The Thursday evening performance will be Pay What You Can. A portion of ticket sales will benefit JPAC's Accessibility Fund, which is a separate fund set aside to be used for interpreters, audio descriptions, and sensory friendly efforts, for future JPAC performances.
Performances on Thursday & Friday, October 19 & 20 at 7 PM and Saturday & Sunday, October 21 & 22 at 2 PM.
$25 for Adults; $15 for Students/kids (Free Parking)
