The Miracle Worker is the true story of Helen Keller, an Alabama girl born blind and deaf, and her partially blind instructor Annie Sullivan who, by teaching her language, would set Helen on the path of becoming one of the world’s most accomplished and remarkable women; writing books and winning international acclaim for her story and her determination to not let her disabilities stop her from her well-documented path. Keller and Sullivan remained lifelong companions.
The Broadway production led to an award-winning 1962 motion picture that led to Oscars for Anne Bancroft, who played Sullivan; and Patty Duke, portraying Helen Keller. An updated Southern California production will be presented at the Attic Theater in Santa Ana from July 10th through July 25th, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30p, and Sundays at 2:30p. The theater is at 2834 S. Fairview, Santa Ana, at the corner of Fairview and Segerstrom.
Because of the inspirational nature of the story, The Attic will present one signed performance each weekend and will be encouraging schools for the deaf and other organizations for the hearing impaired to see this play.
