"theater" piece on the use of sign-language interpreters in the theater, noting that in Maine, the few performances that are accessible to the deaf are signed by hearing interpreters. Meryl Troop, director of the Office of Deaf Services and Multicultural Diversity at the state Department of Behavioral and Developmental Services, said that at best, interpreting is less desirable than theater by and for deaf people. Brenda Schertz, a sign-language teacher at the University of Southern Maine, who is herself deaf, agreed, adding that the location of the interpreter is an important consideration. Some places that have interpreters are Portland Stage, Theater at Monmouth, Lakewood Theater and Penobscot Theater.
