When Nicki Runge was a girl, she loved watching the 1987 film “Sign Me A Story.” Her mother read her children’s books until she was 8 years old, then Runge decided to read to her stuffed animals in sign language while acting them out.

Fast forward to today. Runge realized that “Sign Me A Story” needed a reboot. She wrote her first script/screenplay that gives both hearing and deaf children a production that combines stage and filmed performances of updated versions of their beloved childhood favorites (“Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” “You’re Missing It!” and “Goldilocks and The Three Bears”).

The production of Sign Me A Story includes both American Sign Language and spoken English. Live actors will teach the audience words in sign language then present a film and identify sign language in its story.

ImagineASL Performing Arts presents “Sign Me A Story” through March 14, with performances at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the DL Parsons Theatre (inside the Northglenn Recreation Center), 11801 Community Center Drive, Northglenn. Tickets are available at www.NorthglennArts.org.
