“And In This Corner… Cassius Clay” – Joint Field Trip Experience with StageOne Family Theatre
January 20 – February 13, 2015

This winter join the Muhammad Ali Center and StageOne Family Theatre for a once-in-a-lifetime joint field trip experience!  Groups attending this field trip will 1) attend the new play “And In This Corner…Cassius Clay,” which tells the story of Muhammad Ali’s boyhood in Louisville, Kentucky; and 2) receive a guided tour of the Muhammad Ali Center exhibits.

This joint field trip is a unique collaboration between and the Muhammad Ali Center and is being offered as a dual experience. Attending only one portion of the field trip is NOT an option.

  • Each field trip will run from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Please schedule buses accordingly. All reservations will be managed by StageOne Family Theatre directly.
  • All groups will be able to bring their lunch and eat in the Bomhard Theater at the Kentucky Center – only bottled water with a cap is permitted in the theater.
  • Field trip recommended for grades 4 and up

Due to the high volume of school groups that this combo field trip will bring to the Ali Center, we will not be offering our normal self-guided or guided tour experiences during this time frame.

All reservations for the dual field trip experience are being taken by StageOne.  Please visit the following website for more information:
