Open Captioning at Open Eye Theater Sunday

People with hearing impairments are invited to the Open Eye Theater’s 2 p.m. performance of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” on Sunday Dec. 27, as open captioning will be available.

The vivid and often humorous poetic imagery of Dylan Thomas’s memories of holiday seasons of his childhood in the 1920s, may remind us—ever so slightly, of course--of our own childhood Christmases. With open captioning, the words spoken by the actors are visible on a screen near the stage. The ensemble of five adults and five young actors play a variety of roles in Thomas’s story of arctic-like snow and fire engines; cats and hippos; elderberry wine and marzipan; groaning uncles and singing aunts. There are traditional carols and Welsh cookies and more. Fun for audiences of all ages.

The Open Eye Theater is located at 960 Main Street, Margaretville. The show is family friendly, and the theater is fully accessible. There are handicap parking spaces in front, near the ramp, and plenty of additional parking in the village park behind the theater. Admission is $10; children and youth accompanied by an adult attend free. For further information, and reservations, phone 845-586-1660 or e-mail
