Thalian Association Presents The Miracle Worker March 21-24

Thalian Association, the Official Community Theater of North Carolina, presents William Gibson’s Tony Award-winning classic The Miracle Worker for four performances only March 21-24 at historic Thalian Hall; Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 3pm.  $25 with senior, student and group discounts.  For tickets call 910/632.2285 or visit
Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this absorbing play tells the story of the lonely teacher, Annie Sullivan, and her willful young student, the blind, deaf and mute Helen Keller.  Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, and treated by her family as almost sub-human.  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.
The production, directed by Laurene Perry, stars Dori Schoonmaker as Annie, Avri Hepler as Helen, Stuart Pike as Capt. Keller, Amanda Young as Kate Keller and Kevin Wilson as James Keller.
