21st of Feb – the Thursday night performance of Robin Hood the Panto will be a relaxed and BSL interpreted performance.
we are therefore very happy to introduce our BSL interpreter – Colette Burgess
Colette is a fully qualified British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter with a passion for theatre interpreting. Her sister is profoundly Deaf and so she learnt sign language when she was a baby and BSL has become her second language. Colette grew up with a background in various dance styles and loved performing on stage. Watching musicals is an expensive hobby of hers and have seen many interpreted productions with her sister. This then kick started Colette’s passion for wanting more access in theatre for Deaf people. She has attended theatre interpreting workshops and now wants to put the knowledge to practise by interpreting her first ever panto!
