Admission will be $2.00 for students and $4.00 for adults.  The play is presented with special permission from Samuel French.  

The nonfiction play is based on the biography of Anne Sullivan and the autobiography of Helen Keller.

Blind and deaf after suffering a terrible fever as a baby, young Helen Keller is unable to communicate, leaving her frustrated and occasionally violent.
