Presented at Crucible
In a time of segregation, when jazz and baseball flourished, a courageous group of men struggled to achieve their dreams despite the odds.
This compelling new jazz opera tells the fast-paced story of Negro League baseball players whose talents went unacknowledged whilst their jazz compatriots reached stardom by defining a new artform. Julian Joseph’s swinging score inspired by the era of Ellington and Armstrong offers a lively evening of home runs, peanuts and Cracker Jack, which is great fun for all the family!
Featuring Julian Joseph, Cleveland Watkiss, The Julian Joseph Quintet and a cast of local school children.

‘Undeniably thrilling and illuminating’
The Crucible is the main producing venue in the Sheffield Theatres complex. On occasion, the Crucible hosts touring work. The Crucible is also the home of the annual World Snooker Championship.
The performance area is a thrust stage which extends into the auditorium, enabling the audience to watch the action on three sides. No member of the audience is ever further than 22 metres from the stage, and the sightlines are excellent, offering equality of experience across the auditorium.
