Deaf illusionist Kyle Peron to perform at Knoebel's Amusement Park to promote deaf culture and empowerment
Deaf magician Kyle Peron believes that deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals do not get the chance to fully "experience" art and entertainment. Knoebel's Amusement Park and Resort has teamed up with Kyle and Bloomsburg University to change all that. Deaf Day will be presented through out the park onJune 21st, 2014.
Deaf Day is an opportunity for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to come to Knoebels and enjoy the shows at the park through sign language interpretation.
Members of the Bloomsburg University senior interpreter training class will provide the on-stage interpretation with support/mentoring from Pennsylvania state-registered interpreters. All interpreters will volunteer their services.
Deaf Magician Kyle Peron started losing his hearing at age 8. However this has never stopped him. When asked what this day means to him, he said, "Deaf Day is a chance to allow deaf and hard-of-hearing people to truly experience the art of magic and feel included as part of the show experience."
Kyle and his wife Kelly will be performing 4 shows open to everyone in the park. Folks will experience a fun and exciting show. They will also experience Kyle's own personal story told through the usage of magic.
After each show, guest will have a chance to ask questions to Kyle and the interpreters. Kyle said, "This is a wonderful thing Kneobel's is doing. I get the chance to empower others and let them know ANYTHING is possible with hard work and determination. Empowerment is the best magic I can offer them."
Kyle and Kelly Magic was formed in 1986 to provide family-friendly magic and illusion shows that make events unforgettable and fun.
