SHiFT

shift

HLAAKC announces that the Greater Kansas City Business Leadership Network has a new way for job seekers with disabilities, including hearing loss to apply for jobs.  A HLAAKC member attended a SHIFT meeting and learned there are employers who are looking for employees with disabilities, including those with hearing loss.   SHIFT helps match employers with SHIFT registered job-seekers who happen to have a disability.   During the meeting, HLAAKC explained how people with hearing loss can have several different phone numbers, such as InnoCaptions and Sorenson, but you can simply mark your phone numbers in preference of how you like to be contacted without disclosing it is a service for deaf or hard-of-hearing.   SHIFT is an exciting tool we hope you are thrilled.   Please send us feedback at hlaakc@gmail.com, so we can spread the news.

Christmas Spectacular Open Caption Live Performance Sat. 12/10, 1pm

christmas-at-resurrection-resized

Find Tickets

Christmas at Resurrection is a Kansas City musical tradition that takes place at our Leawood campus! This must-see musical presentation features more than 300 actors, singers, dancers and instrumentalists in a celebration of Christmas and the depiction of the traditional Christmas story. Make plans to attend the very first Open Caption performance and the only OC performance on Saturday, Dec. 10th. Join us for this great family holiday tradition as we celebrate Christmas at Resurrection!

Mark your calendars! This has been a long project in making a dream come true for those with hearing loss will experience this play with open captions for the very first time on Sat, Dec. 10th 1pm. HLAA-KC is proud to offer this as result of advocating for OC since beginning of this year.

Tickets for this event – You can go online at the link above, or call 866-830-5067. At that number Lori is very patient in helping with seat selection. The best place to see stage and captions for $12 + 1.06 tax is in Sections B (all seats starting with 1 working to the left) and Section J (all seats starting with 16 and going to the right). Those are considered “center side tickets”.

However, the captions can be seen from any seat in the Sanctuary, even the back row on the upper level! Sections C-H are $22 seats. Sections A, B, I, J are $12.

You can go online and pretend to order to see the seats left and back out, without buying, if you want to.

They cannot hold seats for our group. They sell out on this matinee performance fast. We recommend calling right away or buy online now, if you know you can come. Do not delay.

The general theme of the play is everyone is busy buying Christmas gifts and forget the true meaning of Christmas, then they transform into celebrating Jesus’s arrival. Actor’s costumes and live nativity animals are all part of this smartly crafted live performance so if you happen to have hearing loss or deaf, your eyes will be smiling throughout this show!

There is no extra fee if you go online and purchase tickets. No refunds and no exchanges.

Please “Like” our Facebook Event or subscribe to our blog, so you can receive updates and share with your family and friends. Tickets are on sale online(see link above).  If you have questions, please email us at hlaakc@gmail.com.

Come and enjoy the spirit of Christmas!

Les Miserables School Edition

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. Now adapted for student performers, Les Misérables School Edition features one of the most memorable scores of all time and some of the most memorable characters to ever grace our stage.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter.

Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through piece is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one of the greatest musicals ever written.
