'The Jackie Robinson Story' Comes to the Raue Center

"The Jackie Robinson Story" returns in time for African American History Month.

Mad River Theatre Works will present Everybody’s Hero: The Jackie Robinson Story at the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake. 

The show is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2014.

This production is back by popular demand and just in time to kick off African American History Month.

Audience members will see what happens when Branch Rickey decides to add a black person to the Brooklyn Dodgers – a player strong enough to stand up and turn the other cheek to the teammates who would ridicule him, the pitchers who would throw at him and the fans who would send him threats. 

Join Raue Center for an inspirational tale of triumph and perseverance.

Everybody’s Hero is part of Mission Imagination, Raue Center’s arts education program made by the generous support of the Foglia Family Foundation.

Limited seats are open to the public so purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.

Tickets are only $20 for adults, and $6 for students and can be purchased online at www.rauecenter.org, or via the Box Office at 26 N. Williams Street in Historic Downtown Crystal Lake or by calling 815.356.9212.
