The Miracle Worker by William Gibson

March 12-15, 2020 at 7:30 pm | Matinée: March 14, 2020 at 2 pm 
Centennial Theatre

Directed by George Rideout.

Among the most beloved American plays of all time, The Miracle Worker presents the true story of the young Helen Keller, blind and deaf from infancy. Undisciplined by her parents due to the pity they feel for her, and unable to communicate beyond simple hand gestures, Helen has slipped ever further into a dark, soundless, and frightening world. As a last resort the Kellers hire a teacher for Helen, Annie Sullivan. Annie arrives with a rough, no nonsense mentality and despite the grave misgivings of the Kellers, she performs a miracle: she gives Helen the gift of language.

A play for the whole family that touches the heart in a way that few plays have ever done.

Good for 8 year old kids to adults.
