Deaf Entertainment

From: via email - Nov 28, 2007

There is a company in Branson, Missouri, that is making the attractions, shows, restaurants, etc..deaf and hard of hearing friendly. The name of the company is Signed Entertainment Enterprises. They are pretty new, but have already caught the attention of most of the city. Thier goal at first was to make the shows deaf friendly, but now have focused their attention on the whole city. This is a pretty kool concept. They have established a standard by which to certify each business as "S.E.E. Certified". They will then post those that are certified for the general public to view. You will be able to go to their web site and actually plan your vacation at your own convenience. I think everyone needs to check out what they are doing. They are also opening up the very first "Deaf Welcome Center" in Branson. They are talking to everyone, from real estate, to banks, to the brand new Air Port, to the shows, Hotels, etc. The Hotel Grand Victorian was the first hotel to sign on, and the White House Theater was the first show to sign on. I think this is going to be very good news for the deaf community.
