Jackie & Me
April 28-June 5, 2011
Charlotte Martin Theatre
In Jackie & Me, young Joey Stoshack has the special power to travel through time just by holding a baseball card and concentrating really hard. When he’s given an assignment to write a paper on Jackie Robinson, it only makes sense to head back to 1947 and meet the famous baseball player. Through his adventures, Joey experiences what it’s like to be African-American during a time of segregation. He witnesses Jackie’s dedication and determination when even people on his own team are against him.
Sierra Nelson & Rachel Kessler
