Helen Keller became an influential author, activist, and lecturer during her life despite being deaf and blind. She went much beyond her supposed limitations. In The Miracle Worker, though, we see her struggles as she learns language and of the outside world. A determined teacher, Annie Sullivan reaches out to Keller in order to accomplish the feat. While teaching Keller, Sullivan also battles past the doubts of Keller's family.
The Miracle Worker features Jade Dailey as Helen Keller and Laura Duncan as Annie Sullivan. William Gibson created the production.
Following The Miracle Worker, Floyd Central High School will present The Music Man. Performances will run in November.
