Bull Durham

On the Alliance Stage

September 3, 2014 to October 5, 2014

A world premiere musical

Ages 16+
Bull Durham contains sexual content and innuendo and is recommended for audiences age 16 and older — Bull Durham goes to third base on the romance dial.

A pitch perfect blend of comedy, drama, and steamy romance.

Bull Durham, loosely based on Ron Shelton’s experiences on and off the field with a Minor League Baseball team, tells the story of three lives brought together by America’s two favorite pastimes. Veteran catcher “Crash” Davis has been brought to the Durham Bulls to prepare rookie Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh, a hot rod pitcher with a “million dollar arm and a five cent head,” for the majors. Annie Savoy, self-appointed high priestess and muse of the Bulls, has a hard decision to make - every season she transforms one lucky player from an also-ran to an all-star by sharing with them her wisdom, experience and bed. The love triangle heats up quickly as each character struggles with their own desires and hopes for what the future holds. A pitch perfect blend of comedy, drama, and steamy romance, Bull Durham will leave you cheering from the stands.
