About the Event
Join us for the premiere of Champions featuring actors with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Woody Harrelson stars in this hilarious and heartwarming story of a former minor-league basketball coach who, after a series of missteps, is sentenced to community service and forced to coach a Special Olympics team. He soon realizes that despite his doubts, together, this team can go further than they ever imagined. The cast includes more than 10 actors with intellectual disabilities who authentically tell the story.
