The Miracle Worker' engages, inspires

Orono Community Theatre presents stage classic

ORONO One of the most touching and inspirational stories ever to grace the American stage has been brought to life in Orono.

Orono Community Theatre's production of 'The Miracle Worker' - written by William Gibson as an adaptation of Helen Keller's autobiography 'The Story of My Life' and directed by Angela Bonacasa is now playing at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine campus. The show runs through January 24.

'The Miracle Worker' tells the story of young Helen Keller (Sophia Mullins), a girl struck blind and deaf by an illness in her infancy. Despite the best efforts of her mother (Amy Moran) and father (Mark Bilyk), there doesn't seem to be any way to reach Helen, whose frustration and anger spill over into uncontrollable tantrums that dominate the household.
