Actor presents play about baseball legend

10/16/2007

Celebrate the life of baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at Jackson’s Galloway Memorial United Methodist Church.

Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart is Mike Wiley's one-actor drama about the life of Robinson, who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball in 1947. His stellar baseball career was matched off the field by his character and Christian faith.

Wiley presented a similar play about Emmett Till in February.

Adult tickets are $20; children's tickets are $5. Group rates are available. Proceeds benefit Bethlehem Center in Jackson. For information, contact the center at bethlehemjackson@bellsouth.net or 601-355-0224.
