Main Street Theater celebrates Jackie Robinson’s 100th birthday, his breaking the color barrier, and his impact on the civil rights movement with the powerful play Jackie & Me, based on the modern classic of the same title by Dan Gutman.

Young Joey Stoshack has the special power to travel through time, so when he’s given an assignment to write a paper about a famous African-American, he chooses Jackie Robinson and heads back to 1947 to meet the man himself. Through his adventures, Joey experiences what it’s like to be African-American during a time of segregation and witnesses first-hand Jackie smashing the color barrier, even when people on his own team are against him.
