This is a bright, snappy one hour musical about the man who broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Although it is aimed at young audiences, all ages will enjoy this portrayal of Jackie Robinson's determination to be the best despite seemingly insurmountable racism. Characters include Rachel, the girl Jackie met in college and later married; Branch Rickey, the owner of the Dodgers who dared to sign Robinson; and Satchel Paige, the great black pitcher who acts as narrator and plays various other roles throughout the play.
