San Diego – Deaf, blind, and mute twelve-year-old Helen Keller was like a wild animal. Scared out of her wits, but still frighteningly strong, she clawed and struggled against all who tried to help her.  Half-blind herself, but blessed with fanatical dedication, Annie Sullivan began a titanic struggle to release the young girl from the terrifying prison of eternal darkness and silence.   Junior Theatre’s production of The Miracle Worker brings the audience into Helen Keller’s world, sharing the dramatic story of Annie Sullivan and her struggle to teach Helen how to be a part of the world she could not see or hear.  The cast features 16 students from San Diego County, including seasoned Junior Theatre performers and introducing the talents of several new students.  

Written by William Gibson, The Miracle Worker opens at Balboa Park’s Casa Del Prado Theatre on Friday, January 7, and runs through Sunday, January 23. Performances are at 7 p.m. on Fridays, and at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $8 - $14.
