I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season and that everyone's is starting off with good health and happiness!
There is a special program coming up at Town Hall is this Friday! We've used FB and the HLAA-WA Sound Waves to spread the word, but here's a personal invitation! I hope you, your friends, family and colleagues can attend! Please share this invitation and please post on social media!!
This coming Friday, January 23, we would love for you, your colleagues, friends and family to join us at Town Hall Seattle for Kimberly Parker's Seattle debut of her One Woman Play; Lost in Sound. Lost in Sound is Kimberly's story of growing up with hearing loss, becoming deaf, and hearing again with the miracle of technology. Kimberly's monologues, vignettes and original solos will inspire you, make you laugh, cry and leave you talking.
Kimberly chose Town Hall for her Seattle debut for its commitment to accessibility to people with hearing loss. Thanks to 4Culture for making this possible! The user friendly hearing loop installation means many who have CI's or hearing aids can understand clearly without seeking staff assistance and borrowing a separate receiver. Their receiver is their personal CI or hearing aid allowing them to tap into the assistive technology, even discreetly, whenever or however they choose. Headset/Receivers are available for those who do not have prescriptive aids.The Hearing Loss Association of America-Washington is proud to sponsor CART Captioning. With these seamless and universal accessibility options in place, Kimberly will be able to share her stories with everyone regardless the degree of hearing loss.
Kimberly, is an elected HLAA-WA trustee and Gallaudet trained Peer Mentor who has dreamed of using her talent as a writer, actress and singer to engage an audience, to challenge them to think and to inspire them to take action. She says; "I know that live theater can be cathartic and has the power to transform, that's why I wrote Lost in Sound."
This event will work at so many levels to help people with and without hearing loss--teachers, students, employers, policy makers, physicians, parents and children alike, understand the invisible disability of hearing loss, emotionally, technologically, and practically---and it would be a lovely evening out to boot.
Might this program be something your community would enjoy? Tickets are just $15 for students and seniors; $18 for general audiences. I've attached a flyer for you to post or hand out to your clients and friends. I would be happy to provide a couple of complimentary tickets. Please let me know if the ticket price is a hardship for anyone and I'll be happy to supply complimentary tickets.
