'The Miracle Worker' Comes to New London's New Stage
New London Theatre is presenting "The Miracle Worker" in its new facility, beginning this weekend.
Snellville-based nonprofit New London Theatre will present "The Miracle Worker" from June 8 to June 24 in its new location.
In Tuscumbia, Ala., an illness renders infant Helen Keller blind, deaf, and consequently mute (deaf-mute). Pitied and badly spoiled by her parents, she learns no discipline and grows into a wild, raging creature by the age of six. Desperate, the Kellers hire Anne Sullivan to serve as a governess and teacher for their young daughter.
After several fierce battles with Helen, Anne convinces her parents she needs two weeks alone with her if she is to achieve any progress in her education. In that time, she teaches her discipline and language through the use of her fingers, a breakthrough that has a direct effect on everyone's life and the way they live it.
8 p.m.: June 8-9, June 15-16, June 22-23
2:30 p.m.: June 10, June 17 and June 24
Shows are performed at New London Theatre's space inside Margins Charity Thrift and Variety Mall, 2338 Henry Clower Boulveard. (This is the New London Plaza site.)
Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 on the day of the show. Children/students (3-19) and seniors (55 years old and older) are always $10. Tickets can be purchased online or at the theatre box office.
