The year is almost over . One thing 2016 made clear is the diversity of our country. Different cultures, communities, points of view. And a great need to understand, respect and connect with each other.
We believe theatre serves a critical role in creating empathy and deepening understanding between people. We believe that by telling personal, human stories that dramatize lives from different communities, we stop seeing those cultures as “the other”. There is no “other”. There is only ourselves. Together.
Troy Kotsur and Deanne Bray are two fabulous actors and members of our Fountain family. You’ve seen them both on TV, in film, and on our stage. You were dazzled by Troy’s lead performance in our Sign Language/English world premiere of Cyrano. And before achieving the ground-breaking lead role in her own TV series, Deanne earned her first professional stage acting job at the Fountain Theatre twenty-five years ago. They now have an eager message to share with you. Take a look and enjoy!
Lea Thompson can be currently seen on the ABC Family TV series Switched at Birth. She starred in her own TV series Caroline in the City and starred opposite Michael J. Fox in the Back to the Future movies.

The cast of Cyrano had a great time performing a scene from our upcoming signed/spoken production at SIGNin’ in the Street, the exciting weekend event celebrating creativity in the deaf community at Downtown Disney District. Along with our scene from Cyrano, there were screenings of films and TV shows, booths, interactivity, the cast from “Switched at Birth“, and other live performances. We had a blast! And thousands of people from all over the country showed up to enjoy all of the activities. A fun day!
