With us last week was Se Layne, artistic director of the Palm Canyon Theatre in Palm Springs. While Palms To Pines has been donating for years to help support the theater’s sign language performances, Se gave us insight into just how much work our own Kay Van Zandt puts in to make the signed performances a reality. Kay lines up two to three College of the Desert ASL students to sign the performances and, just like the actors on stage, the students must memorize their lines and rehearse for weeks. Se says demand for the signed performances grows each year and now over half of the seats are taken up by the hearing impaired during the signed productions. Thanks, Kay, for your Service Above Self!
