Christopher Tester BIO

I have a great passion for theatre arts, and believe in making the theatre enjoyable and accessible for everyone. I have worked with different theatre and theatrical projects off and on since college. Most recently, I performed in my very first musical ever! I performed as Perchik in Fiddler on the Roof with Lyric Theatre in Oklahoma alongside with fabulous Sandra Mae Frank from Spring Awakening. What a ride that was, to learn to sing (in ASL) and dance at the same time, with choreography was far harder than I expected but a thrilling and rewarding experience. I plan to continue to act along with fellow Deaf actors and non-deaf actors to create a bridge between two languages and two worlds.

I don't only act, I also consult on script for Deaf characters, provide ASL or BSL coaching, translating English script to American Sign Language, and provide training on understanding Deaf role and communications.
