EAU CLAIRE -- The Mixed Blood Theatre Co. will present its touring production of "Jackie Robinson" Tuesday, Feb. 3. The free performance will begin at 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre.
The production is a memorable one-man show on the life of the man who broke baseball's color bar. More than a collection of baseball anecdotes, "Jackie Robinson" is the story of a man whose influence and leadership reached far beyond the stadium.
"Jackie Robinson" is produced by The Mixed Blood Theatre Co. of Minneapolis. Founded in 1976, Mixed Blood is a multi-racial non-profit professional theater.
The performance will be sponsored by the Black Students Association, American Ethnic Coordinating Office, and Advocates for Multicultural Education.
For more information, call Kim DePrenger at (715) 835-1634.
