A performance of the Big Apple Circus geared toward children or adults with vision or hearing impairments is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post, 720 Northern Blvd., Brookville.

Wireless audio headsets will offer a play-by-play description of the action. American Sign Language interpreters will be positioned in spotlights to sign throughout the performances.

Large-print or Braille programs will be available. A "touch session" after the show lets pre-selected groups of visually impaired children go into the ring to literally feel a clown nose, a juggler's clubs, or the coat of a performing dog. The show, called FUN2C: A Circus Fantasy, features jugglers, clowns, animals, aerialists, acrobats and more.
