When Cece loses her hearing at age four, her whole world changes. She faces embarrassment at school with her bulky hearing aid strapped to her chest. But with her hearing aid she discovers a superpower: the ability to hear the teacher when she is not in the room! In our staging of Cece Bell’s Newbery-honored graphic novel, you’ll experience how she learns to embrace her difference as the superhero, El Deafo, and make some true friends along the way.
