Dallas Children's Theater presents Jackie & Me
Like many other 10-year-old boys, Joey Stoshak is crazy about baseball. Unlike his peers, Joey has a knack for time travel. When Joey is assigned to write a report on an African American hero, he uses his special ability to go to 1947 Brooklyn and meet Jackie Robinson.
When his trip back in time unexpectedly changes the color of Joey’s skin, he is forced to face harsh truths about prejudice and discrimination. Adapted from the popular series of young adult novels by Dan Gutman, this powerful play explores what Jackie Robinson can teach us about the true nature of heroism.
