I just love everything that The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati does. And this season is no exception. First of all, it is its ONE-HUNDREDTH SEASON!!!! WHAT? And they are kicking it off with the world-premiere of Casper The Friendly Musical! Check it out at the Taft Theatre October 12-October 21, 2019 TCT’s 100th birthday celebration season is going to be amazing! And I adore that they are starting it with Casper! I really liked the cartoon when I was a kid! I am so OOOLLD!
“In TCT’s world-premiere musical adaptation, everyone’s favorite friendly ghost and his three uncles live in the family mansion. Fifty years after their lives were cut short in a lightning storm, Magdalena, their former maid, re-enters their (after)lives! Now a famous Reality TV Host, she’s looking for the mansion’s deed and believes it will lead her to a “great treasure.” She hosts a live million-dollar treasure hunt in the mansion. It’s up to Casper and his new friends, the contestants, to save the mansion and discover the greatest treasure of all!”

The sensory-friendly performance of Casper The Friendly Musical on October 16 is intended for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as children (and adults) with other special needs who may benefit. To create a sensory-friendly performance, the show is performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for those with sensory challenges. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound are made and effects such as fog, strobes, and lights that extend into the audience are minimalized. A downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) is made available on the TCT website one week before the performance. At the theater, TCTprovides an area staffed by specialists in the field where patrons can take a break from the performance if necessary, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has trained staff on hand.
