Event description

Description

Ding, Ding, Ding! A young Cassius Clay Jr. takes his first steps into the ring and on the path to becoming boxing legend Muhammad Ali. This historical drama takes our audiences back to Jim Crow Louisville where, despite a culture of segregation and racism, a young man finds inspiration in his community and the power of his own potential.

This show is recommended for ages 8 & up due to the historically accurate use of a small amount of hate speech and violence. While this language and these events may be jarring and uncomfortable for our audiences to witness, we feel it is important for students to understand these events as they happened.

Birmingham Children’s Theatre is proud to offer sensory-friendly performances for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivities or other special needs. These performances are designed to provide an arts experience that is engaging, enjoyable, and accessible for all of our audiences.

Accommodations for these performances include:

  • Lower sound level, especially for startling or loud sounds;

  • Lights remain on at a low level in the theater during the performance;

  • A reduction of strobe lighting or lighting focused on the audience;

  • Patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance;

  • Designated quiet areas within the theater;

  • Space throughout the theater for standing and movement;

  • Families will also have access to resource materials to prepare for their visit.

Questions about our Sensory Friendly performances can be sent to boxoffice@bct123.org.
