The Miracle Worker

By Sam Barlow Theatre Department (other events)

4 Dates Through Apr 30, 2017

Sam Barlow Theatre Department presents the historic drama by William Gibson, April 27-30. Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: "water". 

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the door one hour before the curtain. All performances will be interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing.
