My heart is singing for joy this morning! A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil's mind, and behold, all things are changed!
Anne Sullivan, The Miracle Worker

Our local college theatre department has produced a fantastic performance of William Gibson's The Miracle Worker. The 10-year-old girl who played Helen was amazing, so true, so believable, and Annie Sullivan couldn't have been played better. The production crew did interesting things with light and sound, keeping our attention during action scenes with dramatic music, and using changes in light to show flashbacks and Annie's painful memories. I shed a few tears as Annie makes her break-throughs with Helen, and felt inspired all over again by the power of loving and determined teachers.
The production runs at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 & 15, and at 2 p.m. Oct. 16.
Tickets are $6 and may be purchased with a credit card by calling 855-8199 or online at www.clctickets.com. Tickets for CLC students are a quarter. Oct. 16 is an American Sign Language signed performance.
