Sensory-Friendly Performance
NCT welcomes all kids and families to our performances, but we know that some families hesitate to bring their children to live theatre without knowing how they might react. The Sensory-Friendly Performances are designed to be a safe and accepting environment where children with disabilities and their typically developing peers are free to speak and move in reaction to the story being told onstage. In addition, sound levels will be lowereed slightly and an Usher-Guide will light a glow light before something startling is about to happen onstage, to allow audience members to prepare. A Pre-Visit Story is available to help participants understand what to expect when you visit NCT and see a show. These are usually available two weeks prior to the Sensory-Friendly Performance. Patrons wishing to select seats specially-designated as having the best view of the Usher-Guide should click the button for Accessible Seating and select from seats in House Left (right side of the map) in rows C-F.

Description
And In This Corner: Cassius Clay
By Idris Goodwin.

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

What kind of fights are you going to fight and what are you going to fight for? Before he was real-life superhero Muhammad Ali, he was Cassius Clay, a black teenager growing up in segregated Louisville, Kentucky. Against all odds, the young boxer pursues and achieves his dream of Olympic Gold, but finds his triumph hollow when faced with the realities of segregated Jim Crow America. Vowing to never be treated as a second-class citizen again, Cassius decides he is going to be the type of person who fights not only for himself, but for others too. In this corner, ignorance, bigotry, poverty and injustice. And in this corner...Cassius Clay!

This production will be best appreciated by ages 10 and up.
