Video: Signing Shakespeare at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival

Signing for theater is specialized art form. Interpreter Holly Thomas-Mowery, who coordinates the Idaho Shakespeare Festival's Signing Shakespeare program, demonstrates how signing styles vary regionally and changes from character to character — like dialects. That will come in handy for Thomas-Mowery who will interpret the upcoming production of "Steel Magnolias," a comedy set in the South.
