The Tyndale Christian School THIS WEEK, BE PART OF A MIRACLE Year 12 drama production presents The Miracle Worker The 2006 Year 12 drama class are presenting William Gibson’s “The Miracle Worker” the story of Helen Keller. Helen is trapped in a world of darkness and silence. Deaf and blind, she is unable to reach others or be reached. Helen reacts in frustration and violence attacking those who love her and causing immense stress in her family. Unable to deal with her, the family considers an asylum but in a last attempt to keep Helen at home employ a teacher, Miss Annie Sullivan. Annie is barely 20, almost blind herself and as emotionally burdened by her childhood as Helen is by her blindness. However, in Annie, Helen meets her match. Both trapped, they need someone to unlock the door to freedom, not knowing it would be the other. Performance dates are Week 4 this term, Wednesday August 16th, Friday August 18th and Saturday August 19th. Tickets are available at the front office. Adults $9:90 and all concessions $7:70.
