Announcing our Braille Readers Theater Production of The Miracle Worker
Join us for a free performance of The Miracle Worker, By William Gibson, on Saturday, March 24, from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., in the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind.
The play dramatizes the efforts made by the visually-impaired Annie Sullivan to teach the blind-and-deaf Helen Keller how to communicate. In readers theater there are no costumes or sets. The actors do not memorize lines, but sit together on stage and read from the script-using vocal expression to help the audience understand the story.
This reading of the play features actors who have a connection to the story like no other-they are blind themselves and will be reading the script in braille.
The event is free, but space is limited. Reservations must be made by March 22 by calling museum educator Katie Carpenter at ext 213 or send email to kcarpenter at aph.org<mailto:kcarpenter at aph.org>. Best for older students and adults.
