"Maybe This Time"
When I played the Emcee in Phamaly Theatre Company's production of CABARET, several members of the cast and crew - many of whom have physical or mental limitations - told me that they wished they could learn sign but felt they couldn't because of their own individual characteristics. This frustrated me because I believe that - no matter who you are or what you struggle with - anyone can sign in their own special way. To prove this to them, I secretly made this video. While I was filming it, I refused to tell them what I was doing. I just broke down the translations, teaching each person a few random words or phrases and then puting it on tape, later editing it all together. It wasn't until I gathered them all into the theater before one show and had a mini-premiere that they realized what I had done. I thank them all for trusting me.
