Following on the heels of three great performances of The Jungle Book by Hume Elementary students earlier this week,  L.V. Rogers Secondary School presents The Miracle Worker, a timeless story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan beginning Thursday, and playing throughout the weekend, at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson.

Deaf and blind from infancy, Helen Keller struggles to communicate until Annie, an audacious young teacher, shows her that things have names.

The Miracle Worker, written by William Gibson and directed by Robyn Sheppard, has been double cast in order to maximize the learning experience for the students involved — meaning actors play different roles during each performance at the Capitol Theater.

The Miracle Worker opens Thursday at the Capitol Theatre at 7:30 p.m.

There are also shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. with two matinees, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.tickets.capitoltheatre.bc.ca or phone, (250) 352-6363.
