Sean Berdy, best known for his portrayal of the “Deaf James Dean” character Emmett on Freeform’s Switched at Birth, will speak from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, at Panara Theatre, Lyndon Baines Johnson Hall at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

In “An Evening with Sean Berdy,” Berdy motivates audiences by using his own compelling life story as an example of what one can achieve if they never stop believing in themselves and refuse to let others define their limitations. Guests will also be treated to a special musical performance followed by a chance to meet Berdy and take a picture with him to commemorate the event.

Interpreting services will be provided. Tickets—only available online prior to the show--are $25 and can be purchased at http://seanberdy.ticketleap.com/ntid. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to NTID. For more information, contact events@sean-berdy.com.
