Miracle in Mudville
By D.W. Gregory
Directed by Evan Fitzgerald
Casey is the worst ballplayer in the Mudville Little League, the butt of jokes and an embarrassment to his Dad, who brags of his glory days in the outfield. But he is not alone in feeling inadequate; his friends Murphy and Hector suffer by comparison to their parents, too. Then a chance encounter with the ghost of the town’s late librarian throws Casey and his friends into a time warp, where they discover that some of their parents’ big adventures didn’t quite happen the way they said.
Miracle in Mudville is a riff off the poem, Casey at the Bat, but this Casey is a completely average little leaguer carrying a heavy burden of trying to live up to his Dad's fond memories of his glory days on the field.
