Concordia University's Texas Theatre Program stages their production of The Miracle Worker in the Black Box Theater on November 10th through 12th. The classic American drama by William Gibson is based on the real-life adolescence of Helen Keller, capturing the dark and incomprehensible world of a deaf, blind, and mute child in the 19th century.


Unable to understand the world around her, Keller often flies into primal fits of rage and desperation, each year becoming more unruly and hopeless to her family. The isolation imposed by Keller's complete lack of communication is broken only by a young and inexperienced teacher, Anne Sullivan. Half-blind herself, Sullivan proves that with patience, determination and a lot of tough love, anything is possible.

A cast of ten students will perform playwright William Gibson’s Tony Award-winning drama under the direction of Dr. Lisa Neely, who directed last spring’s sold-out production of The Importance of Being Earnest. The Concordia University cast features students Maggie Thompson as "Helen Keller" and Cassandra Hood as "Anne Sullivan." The production also features cast members Amanda Herrera, Michael Vybiral, Brandon Marks, Amanda Lewis, KyLene Pederson, Adrian Galindo, Katelyn Norman and Susan Pacey.

The Black Box Theater is located at 11400 Concordia University Drive in Building A on the Concordia University Texas campus. For more information and reservations, call (512) 313-PLAY (7529).
