Make a Day of It: “And in This Corner: Cassius Clay” by Oregon Children’s Theater

Run Oregon loves running – that’s no surprise. But we also love the Pacific Northwest and all that it has to offer. Running is a part of us, but it does not fully define us. In our new “Make a Day of It” feature, we aim to showcase some great local non-running events and highlight where to run and how to make the most of your experience!

The next installment of this series is Oregon Children’s Theater “And in This Corner: Cassius Clay”

First the Running:

Oregon Children’s Theater is putting on this show at the Winningstad Theatre (1111 SW Broadway), so there are many options to get a run in before attending a showing. As everyone knows, you can head just a few blocks east to get to the Waterfront and add your mileage as far as you care to. Or, if you want to try something a little different, consider trying this 1+ mile rectangle. You may hit some traffic, but it can be nice to run in a downtown setting (and maybe sneak onto the PSU campus for some 400’s if you want to get in some speed work!

More about the show:

“And in This Corner: Cassius Clay, The Making of Muhammad Ali” is origin story of Cassius Clay, which begins in segregated Louisville as his bicycle gets stolen and how he meets a police officer who then teaches him how to box. This play will take you into the ring with Cassius as he becomes a world-famous boxer as Cassius, and ends up a civil rights advocate as Muhammad Ali.

The play is recommended for ages 8 and up, yet is only due to a single usage of historically accurate language reflecting the reality of the 1960’s and segregated America.
