When the curtains rise on opening night, the cast and crew of “The Miracle Worker” will bring their all to the stage and promise their audiences a moving production, telling the story of a persistent teacher and her student, a blind and deaf girl.
Annie Sullivan is the governess hired to teach Helen Keller, and she is determined to bring Helen out of her silent and dark world. The play also explores the complex relationships in the Keller household, and universal themes such as respect, acceptance, perseverance and connections will resonate with viewers.
The cast and crew have put in many hours to make the show a success, but they wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I’m best friends with everyone on the show, and it’s amazing to come together on a difficult piece of work and pull it together,” said junior Jordan Dittberner, who portrays James Keller, Helen’s brother. “Being on stage is so rewarding, and I love it.”
“The Miracle Worker” runs Nov. 9-11 and Nov. 16-18. Purchase tickets here.
