The life and work of Jackie Robinson takes the stage in this heartwarming, lively and interactive production about how one man changed America. Audiences join Jackie as he learns valuable lessons from his mother, then cheer him on as he scores his first home run as a professional baseball player. Participation continues as volunteers join Jackie onstage to help him overcome bullying without fighting back. This play includes powerful lessons about the end of segregation and inspires young people to do what is right, follow their dreams, and never give up. The 2014/15 season marks Black Star Touring Theatre’s 12th anniversary of providing professional theatre to young audiences across the nation!
MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL!
presented by Children’s Theatre of Charlotte (For grades K-5)
Friday, April 10, 2015 |
Mike Mulligan and his beloved Steam Shovel, Mary Anne, have been together for many years. But times have changed and newer, fancier shovels have become fashionable, leaving them out of work and down to their last dime. Their final hope lies in the little town of Popperville, which needs a basement dug for its new City Hall. The story of hard work, determination friendship comes to life in this delightful musical adaptation, where we learn that the newest, biggest or most expensive isn’t necessarily the best. Founded in 1948, Children’s Theatre Of Charlotte is one of the country’s largest arts & education organizations that serves young people. The group has received a number of accolades, including a 2008 "Medallion" from the Children's Theatre Foundation of America.
