When middle school history champion Elijah Rock wants to compete again with a spiced-up version of past events, he suddenly has to do battle with everybody – including a mysterious band of spirits who call themselves the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Will he win the competition this year – or even survive to compete? Music, rap, rhyme and the mysteries of time will determine triumph or defeat

NCT puts together tips to help families and schools prepare their children for their experience. Numbers indicate the “score” of each category – 1 representing a small amount and 5 representing a large amount. Education Staff will continue to update these tips on our website as the show may change throughout the rehearsal process.

Social Story

A Social Story is a tool to help improve a child’s understanding of expectations during an unfamiliar event. They were originally designed to support neurodivergent individuals. However, this can be a useful tool for any person who is unsure about what to expect from a new experience.
