This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and deaf 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.
The Miracle Worker is this season’s YABOY production. YABOY (Young Actors Benefiting Other Youth) productions attempt to not only point out problems facing youth, but offer examples and solutions that young people can follow to make a difference in their lives. To help build awareness for the blind, Fountain Hills Theater has partnered with the Foundation for Blind Children.
