Pacific Union College's Dramatic Arts Society is presenting The Miracle Worker, a play about the education of Helen Keller, at 8 p.m. on March 5, 6, and 8, and 4 p.m. on March 9, at PUC Preparatory School. Admission is $5 for the evening performances, and $4 for the afternoon matinee.
Written by William Gibson, The Miracle Worker is a dramatic portrayal of the rescue of Helen Keller by her teacher Annie Sullivan. Keller, blind and deaf, was a spoiled, violent, and isolated six year-old. Annie Sullivan was able to weather her tantrums and help her learn to communicate. "The main story is how Annie Sullivan was able to reach into Helen's mind and begin to teach her," said Andrea Griggs, sponsor of the Dramatic Arts Society.
