The American Sign Language and interpreter training department Glee Club will have its Christmas performance at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 in the auditorium of McAllister Fine Arts Center.

Admission is a $5 donation; admission is free for children under 12.

The performance will feature a mix of traditional and modern carols. While most songs will target an adult audience, some will appeal to children.

“We believe this year’s performance is more visually friendly with a wider variety of songs to please everyone,” Glee Club director Julie Razuri said.

Last year’s performance had more than 350 attendees.

This year’s two-hour show will consist of 24 individual performances.

“I think it’s most surprising how much time and dedication it takes to put on a performance of this kind,” ASL/IT Instructor John Cage said. “The performers will display high levels of creativity in a language (that) is not their native language.”

A Santa who speaks English and Spanish and signs in American Sign Language will meet children for photos after the show.

Photo opportunities also are available with Frosty the Snowman and a Christmas hippo. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own cameras.

Hot chocolate and cookies will also be available after the show.
