TerpTheatre’s website has been active since 1998. It was originally designed as a place to house all of the answers that we often receive about our work. Our original target audience were theatre producers and directors – although the site is now visited by all types of people from all over the world.
Our blog is a journal of our experiences as we prepare for upcoming shows. We hope you enjoy getting to know us – and the great shows available in the shadowed style.
Our website – terptheatre.org – offers an in-depth discussion of shadow interpreting, and a list of our current productions. It is often cited, and is an invaluable stop for anyone interested in the details of shadowed interpreting.
Danny McDougall, PhD, CSC — “Dr. Danny” — owns and manages TerpTheatre. Since 1986, he has interpreted in hundreds of plays, musicals and other performances on stage – most in the shadowed style. He teaches and lectures on the theory and practice of theatre interpreting. Danny is the chair of Sign Language Studies at Madonna University, and holds a PhD in Translation and Interpretation from Heriot-Watt University – where his dissertation explored the relationship between space and meaning during interpreted theatre performances.
