Support Legacy Repertory Company's Special Needs performance of Cinderella

Each year, LRC provides a free performance of their spring production to the special needs community and their families or caregivers. Help support this performance with your donation.

On May 9th, 2014, Legacy Repertory Company, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity,  will perform the ballet Cinderella for as many as 800 people with special needs and their families at the Carolina Theatre in Durham, NC.  For the past five years, our special needs audiences have included both the young and the elderly, those with physical disabilities, cognitive and developmental disabilities, people from institutions, group homes and family homes.  We use every available wheelchair space in the theatre.  All of our performers will attest that the special needs audience is the best, most enthusiastic audience to perform for. The spectacle of the theatre, the artistry of the ballet dancers and aerialists, the beautiful costuming and music touch this audience in a way that  almost defies description. People who cannot use words vocalize their enthusiasm. People who cannot use their legs raise their hands swaying a dance in their wheelchairs. These incredible moments of connection open a new world to members of our community who so rarely get the opportunity to attend theatre productions in an accepting environment.  Our special needs performance is unique in that we allow people to obtain enough tickets for their whole family to attend if they desire. This inclusion, acceptance and accessibilty is why many audience members look forward to coming to our special needs performances year after year.  While the performance is free for the members of the special needs community, it is not free for LRC  to produce.  Help us raise $5000 to increase accessiblity to the performing arts for  those with special needs. Please make your tax deductible contribution today.
