The year is 1938. It's Saturday night in Mount Pleasant, NC, and the Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders Family Singers to provide an upliftin' evening of singin' and witnessin'. The audience is invited to pull up a pew and join in the rollicking good time. More than two dozen songs, many of them vintage pop hymns, and hilarious stories from the more or less devout Sanders provide a richly entertaining evening that has audiences clapping, singing, laughing and cheering.

A true hero on and off the field, Jackie Robinson proved his friends, his enemies and the entire world wrong by breaking the color barrier within Major League Baseball. Through captivating multi-media and stellar acting, this award-winning and historically accurate play follows Jackie from the sandlots of his childhood through his acceptance of the National League's MVP Award in 1949. Grade 4 and Up

Most Valuable Player has been presented to audiences of children and adults throughout the world. The production has been featured in a one-week residency at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; at the Edmonton, Toronto, and Vancouver International Children's Theatre Festivals; on a one-month tour of Canada sponsored by the Canada Council; on a fifty-two-day tour of Europe sponsored by the United States Government; and as the only American company at an International Theatre Festival in Lima, Peru. The strength of Jackie Robinson's character and his courage crosses boundaries of age, race, and nationality.

"A semester of instruction on human rights and social equality could not equal the insights gained from one hour's viewing of this powerful play."--Donal W. Zacharias, President Emeritus, Mississippi State University
