Monique Holt


Monique Holt is a performer, director, and storyteller who adores good stories in print or in performance. Her parents never read-signed her bedtime stories, so her first experience of being read-signed a story was as an adult and it was the complete novel The Three Musketeers. She believes no one is too old or too young to appreciate literature in this manner, whether they are children's stories, Shakespeare, or Asian Folklore. Ms. Holt’s specialty is translating and performing Shakespeare, especially his Sonnets, in American Sign Language. She is a member of AEA, SAG, and AFTRA. She also works as a Deaf Interpreter working with Deaf-Blind, Close-Vision, and non-Deaf/non-English-speaking clients.
