Jed Reynolds stars in an acclaimed play, "National Pastime," in which he portrays all-American icon Jackie Robinson. But that's not the only role Reynolds performs at the Fremont Centre Theatre. He's also the janitor. In fact, he's paid more money for being the janitor than he is for being the star. So goes life at this 78-seat, mom-and-pop theater in South Pasadena -- or, for Reynolds, this stepmom-and-pop theater. It's run by his father, James Reynolds, and stepmother, Lissa Layng Reynolds.

A trenchant pulse fuels "National Pastime" in its California premiere at the Fremont Centre Theatre. Though slow to warm up, Bryan Harnetiaux's populist account of how Brooklyn Dodgers president Branch Rickey saw the historic potential in Jackie Robinson builds to involving levels. Diehard fan Harnetiaux initially trades data for dramatic form. He opens with African American columnist Wendell Smith (Ted Lange) and legendary announcer Red Barber (Vaughn Armstrong).

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's detailed records of their perilous voyage of discovery took little note of the Shoshone teenager who served as their translator. Sacajawea, a fur trapper's young wife, not only endured the same hardships on that epic trek west, but she also carried her baby on her back while doing so. That much is known, but with little else on record, myth has filled the gap.

T.S. Cook's "Ravensridge," in its world premiere at the Fremont Centre, is not a perfect play. Indeed, Cook, the Oscar-nominated co-writer of "The China Syndrome," tends to overstate certain premises better left abstruse. That doesn't lessen the impact of his exciting new drama, which explores complex ideological issues to keen effect. "Ravensridge" was inspired by real events, namely, the labor lockout at a West Virginia steel mill in the early 1990s.
