NTD is a theater group composed of deaf and hearing actors who entertain audiences worldwide through signed and spoken languages.

Transforming Lives

There is not a more striking example of the power of art to transform lives than The National Theatre of the Deaf. In 1967 when NTD began, Sign Language was seen as a stigma. The talents of deaf people were largely untapped.

By placing Sign Language on stage, the National Theatre of the Deaf showed the world that Sign Language was a beautiful, powerful, visual language.
