Learning to Communicate and to Relate - The Trumpet of the Swan

Based on the award-winning children’s literature classic by E.B. White, author of “Stuart Little” and “Charlotte’s Web,” and presented by the Wheelock Family Theatre at Wheelock College, “The Trumpet of the Swan” tells the story of Louie, a swan born without a voice.

Louie, played by the deaf actor Elbert Joseph, befriends a young boy named Sam Beaver, played by Sebastian Wood, and learns American Sign Language (ASL) in this story about the natural world and our own human need to connect with others.

"I hope the audience leaves feeling that anything is possible"
- Annie Wiegand, Lighting Designer

This innovative, all-ages production is presented in both spoken language and American Sign Language. This family-friendly show runs from October 23 - November 22, 2015 at Wheelock Family Theatre in Boston's Fenway neighborhood.
