With music and lyrics by Grammy-award winner Roger Miller, Big River includes deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing actors performing each role in a synchronized ballet of speaking and signing. Spoken English and American Sign Language (ASL) are interwoven with music, dance, and storytelling techniques from both hearing and deaf cultures into a “third language” creating a unique theatrical event. The thrilling score is a mix of Cajun, gospel, folk, country and blues songs. Set 1840’s rural America, the musical follow the exploits of the irrepressible Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, as they explore life along the mighty Mississippi River.
