  • On August 12, over in Portsmouth, NH. Deaf theater will be performing A Suessical Musical. It is being held at Prescott Part at 1pm. I can’t wait! As one who has had to interpret Dr Suess, I am anxious to see how other manage those nonsense words. 🙂

  • I’m in Southern New Hampshire, Keene area. I can’t seem to get the Deaf Event finder to work for NH. I also keep getting a Privacy Policy popup on that page. I work as an interpreter and have for many years but I need a lot of receptive practice and there isn’t much of a Deaf community around me anymore. UNH has a great Deaf Studies program so between Concord and Manchester we should be able to find something. Get in touch if other northerners have come across anything,
