New York Deaf Theatre

New York Deaf Theatre

Mission Statement

The New York Deaf Theatre, LTD (NYDT) was established in 1979 by a group of Deaf actors and theatre artists who wanted to create opportunities for the production of a dramatic art form that was not found elsewhere in New York City: plays in American Sign Language (ASL).

Program Statement

A not-for-profit, professional theatre organization, NYDT is the longest running company of its kind in the greater New York City area and the third oldest Deaf Theatre company in America. The company is governed by an active Board of Directors, the majority of whom are Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and hard of hearing; and large corps of volunteers who help with their energy, donations and leadership. The company is proud of its successes, and is looking forward to continuing its mission to provide quality theatre productions, performances and services to both Deaf and hearing audiences in the years to come.
