Dorothy Meets Alice--And My Son

Two weeks ago, my oldest son was asked to take over a role in the Hinsdale South Deaf Drama, "Dorothy Meets Alice." So for two weeks, he stayed after school until six p.m. and practiced learning 35 lines in American Sign Language. We went to see the play last night and I was so, so proud of my guy! The entire cast did a good job, although there were times when the ASL went over our heads. He's in the red shirt below:

That fight to get your son into Hinsdale South looks like it was well worth it. It is great that he can go to a typical high school and do an ASL play. He seems so confident on that stage!

Good for him! I would LOVE to see a play in ASL! He certainly seems like a hard-working kid, I'd be proud of him too.

Hi Karen!

They are very good pictures and thank you very much for sharing with us! He looks GREAT in the play and I am sure that you are so proud of him.
My daughter is in the play and we will go watch her on the stage tonight!

Happy Holidays,
Deb Ann ;)

Two weeks to practice doesn't seem very long.

It's hard not to just grin ear-to-ear while watching your kids do something like this, isn't it? He looks good.
