Rebecca-Anne Withey The Jungle Book at Derby Theatre (and the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house importance of giving feedback) The Limping Chicken

The reason I ask is because as a family we how to get rid of sugar ants in your house went to see the jungle book at derby theatre. I wrote about the show in a previous article. We were all excited to see how the production fared, seeing as it was the first BSL integrated show for how to get rid of sugar ants in your house derby theatre.

1. The captions were far too high for my liking . I found it disorientating having to look upwards to read how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the text and then downwards again for the action. I managed to resolve this issue by asking to move how to get rid of sugar ants in your house seats right to the back of the theatre and this how to get rid of sugar ants in your house made for much more comfortable viewing.

2. Sometimes the distance between the actors speaking and the “interpreting” actors was too far apart. This meant I missed vital body language, movement and action that was important to the story. There were some parts where the placement was JUST RIGHT how to get rid of sugar ants in your house but this wasn’t consistent throughout the show and at times I missed how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the BSL interpretations because I wanted to see what the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house main actor was doing.

3. The spoken pace was occasionally too quick for the captions how to get rid of sugar ants in your house . There were times when I wanted to slooooow all of how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the dialogue right down because the captions were firing off how to get rid of sugar ants in your house too fast for me to read them. Or even more pauses would have been great!

1. There were times when the whole cast were signing and how to get rid of sugar ants in your house I could have squealed in delight! These were integrated hearing and deaf actors all using BSL how to get rid of sugar ants in your house in the delivery of the story. No matter their background or sign language proficiency or the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house fact that some had never ever signed before. Wow! One song in particular, look well of wolves, was extraordinary as the cast used symmetrical signs across the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house stage to depict the bowing wolves. It really brought BSL to the fore and celebrated its how to get rid of sugar ants in your house strength as a beautiful, visual language and art form.

2. A lot of effort had gone into the musical pieces, and it reaaaaally paid off. The use of live instruments, the sign song translations, the choreography – they all fused wonderfully to bring the songs to life. I must also say that emily rose salter was fantastic how to get rid of sugar ants in your house as a sign song performer (and actor!) as she used the whole of her body to become how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the music and demanded attention with mesmerising stage presence.

3. It felt really easy to access the show, right from the time of booking. The box office had a text number for deaf customers how to get rid of sugar ants in your house and they created BSL videos beforehand explaining the characters and how to get rid of sugar ants in your house terminology used in the show. Even the front of house staff were easy to communicate how to get rid of sugar ants in your house with and so deaf aware.

I feel it’s important that we feedback to shows what they did how to get rid of sugar ants in your house well and also what they could improve for next time. If we don’t give feedback then they aren’t given the opportunity to create shows that we will how to get rid of sugar ants in your house go back watch time and time again.

With the jungle book, I feel the team could have benefitted from sending in how to get rid of sugar ants in your house a group of deaf people to preview the captions, perhaps sit in on a rehearsal run through – this might have highlighted the placement, speed and caption issues I experienced. Maybe it could have enabled deaf people to choose where how to get rid of sugar ants in your house they prefer to sit for comfortable caption viewing – as we all have different preferences after all and what how to get rid of sugar ants in your house works for me may not work for you and vice how to get rid of sugar ants in your house versa.
