Making Darkness Light


New Stage Theatre's production of "The Miracle Worker" opens Tuesday, Oct. 26. (L to R): Courtney Susman as Kate Keller, Sara Thomas Easey as Helen Keller and Jessica Wilkinson as Annie Sullivan.

She's violent and spoiled, and no one wants anything to do with her. She's also deaf, blind and brilliant. It all plays out onstage in "The Miracle Worker," written by William Gibson.

New Stage Theatre brings the story of Helen Keller, based on her autobiography, "The Story of My Life," and the relationship with her teacher Anne Sullivan to life. From a world of silence and darkness to one filled with possibilities and hope, Keller, an eventual Medal of Freedom winner, and her relationship with her teacher offer life lessons to the audience they won't soon forget.

"The Miracle Worker" opens Tuesday, Oct. 26, and ends Sunday, Nov. 7. For tickets and times, call 601-948-3533 or visit Ticket prices range from $10 to $25.
