The Curtain Rises for 'The Miracle Worker' Friday Night

The Jockey Hollow School production will host shows in the auditorium on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m.

Helen Keller was blind, deaf, and mute since infancy and in danger of being sent to an institution, until her family hired Annie Sullivan to tutor their daughter. A battle of wills ensued and a close friendship blossomed as Sullivan rescued Keller from her walls of darkness and silence and taught her to communicate.

This real-life story was turned into the memorable film "The Miracle Worker" in 1962 with Anne Bancroft playing the role of Annie and Patty Duke as Helen. Now, the Jockey Hollow Drama Department will bring it to the school stage on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Directed by David and Susan Halliwell, the student actors will also perform in shows on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 for adults and $12 for students and senior citizens and may be bought at the door.

To David Halliwell---Congratulations!!! I have not seen you in over 30 years, when I was a student of your's at Chalk Hill. Your classes back around 1980 were fun and exciting. I can only imagine how much more enticing and exhilarating your classes and plays are today. Thank you, Mr. Halliwell.....and, again, congratulations.
