TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME (May 14-16, 1998)

by Ron Reed, Paul & Nicole Johnson

Okay. Imagine Christmas Presence. Without the Christmas stuff. At a ballpark, on opening day. That's pretty much the idea of this All Star celebration of the stories, the characters and the literature of this timeless game. This glorious springtime of a show features the writings of W.P. Kinsella, Garrison Keillor, Casey Stengel and other literary giants. Nine innings of dramatic action with Abbott & Costello, Wayne & Schuster, Tinker & Evers & Chance. Sister Wynona Carr's gospel classic "Life Is A Ballgame" and other memorable tunes like "Say Hey (The Willie Mays Sont)." And the players - Shoeless Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Bobby Thompson and Joe Carter, to mention just a few. Buy some peanuts and crackerjacks, and get yourself a seat on the first base line for the greatest opening day Vancouver has ever seen! The most fun you can have outside a ballpark!
