Fredericksburg Theater Company presents “The Miracle Worker” - 10/11-27

William Gibson's Tony Award Winning drama powerfully presents the story of Anne Sullivan's struggle to give Helen Keller the "sight" of life she has lost. Hired as a governess, to give her untamed, wild charge discipline and purpose in life, Anne Sullivan resorts to dramatic means to break through to the sightless and raging Helen in this profoundly moving play. It's a dramatic, universal story of the need to be known, to be heard, and finally to be in control of one's destiny.

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sun at 2 PM. At the Steve W. Shepherd Theater, 1668 Hwy 87 South.
