National Pastime - Algonquin Theater - August 21-24
NATIONAL PASTIME is a screwball comedy set in the 1930's. It's about a small rural town in the Northeast, its radio station and a baseball team. Faced with bankruptcy, low ratings and the possibility of going under, this small radio station takes it upon themselves to create a fictional baseball team which never loses. Playing and beating All-Star teams all over Europe, so wildly popular are the Baker City Cougars that the ratings and profits of the small station begin to soar, the coffers begin to fill ... All is great until the media begins to pay attention.Sports Museum Of America
