"Taste of Sunrise": A Shadow Play for the Deaf Community

  • Overview

    Fort Bend Christian Academy is excited to bring the local community a play like no other, “The Taste of Sunrise,” by Suzan Zeder. It is a tale of two worlds, Deafness and Hearing. The FBCA American Sign Language department, led by Tony Slate and Elyse DeBuck, and the Theatre department, led by Lana Thompson, are working together to create a performance of significant impact.

    The play centers around the life of a young deaf boy named Tuc who struggles to find his voice. His journey leads him to the discovery of sign language, which opens our character’s eyes to his true identity and opens our audience’s eyes to the history of Deaf culture and the beauty of American Sign Language.
