Based on the poem by Ernest L. Thayer. Mudville's star slugger, the Mighty Casey, has struck out and now Mudville has one chance left to win the series. But millionaire Bob Evilman bribes Casey to lose the final game. Jimmy Blake, a young rookie on the team, overhears this and vows to win without Casey. Can he do it? This easy-to-stage play has a wonderful moral about hard work, honesty and team playing, but it's never preachy. It incorporates much of the famous poem with lots of action (in some cases fast forward!), lots of humor and optional dialogue. It's sure to score a home run with young audiences. About 45 minutes.
