For Release through Oct. 29
DALLAS - Theatre Brookhaven brings the much-loved story of “The Miracle Worker” to life with performances Oct. 19-29. This popular play, written by William Gibson, celebrates the triumph of one woman over the almost overwhelming adversity of her life.
Directed by Darise Error, “The Miracle Worker” follows the story of Anne Sullivan's struggle to teach the blind and deaf Helen Keller how to communicate. Sheltered from the rest of the world by her family, Keller communicates only in tantrums, eats with her hands and is constantly excused for her bad behavior. Sullivan is the first person in Keller's life who believes that she can learn and expects her to behave properly.
Shows are Oct. 19-21 and 26-28 at 8 p.m., and Oct. 21-22 and 29 at 2:30 p.m. in the School of the Arts Performance Hall in Building C. General admission is $6; student and senior adults are $4. Tickets are available at the School of the Arts Box Office at 972-860-4118. Box Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Friday from 1 to 3 p.m.
