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.

ORONO The trickster is a central part of almost every culture's lore. Not only does the idea allow for some pretty important morality lessons, but it can make for a pretty great story too.

Orono Community Theatre is presenting 'Tales of Trickery' by Kim Alan Wheetly. The children's show offers two performances on April 27 one at 10:30 AM and one at 2 PM and a 2 PM showing on April 28, all at the Keith Anderson Center in Orono. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under.

Orono Community Theatre presents 'Our Town'

ORONO Here in Maine, we tend to have an inherent understanding of small-town life the pros and the cons alike. So it makes sense that a play like Thornton Wilder's 'Our Town' would resonate with area audiences.

Orono Community Theatre is giving us a chance to experience that resonance firsthand with their production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The show runs from November 29 to December 2 at the Keith Anderson Community Center in Orono. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
