The award-winning Charlotte High School Theatre Department will present the miraculous story of Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, in its upcoming performance, “The Miracle Worker” at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, Carmalita Street, Punta Gorda. Performances will take place from Thursday, Nov. 7 through Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. with a 3 p.m. show on Nov. 10 as well. Tickets, adults $10 and student $7, can be obtained by contacting the box office at 941-505-7469, online or at the door. For more information call 941-276-6101.

“The Miracle Worker” brings to life the dynamic relationship between the blind and deaf Helen Keller, and Annie Sullivan, the young teacher who promised her student: “One word, and I can put the world in your hand.” The story is an inspiring tale of perseverance, of triumph over adversity and of the bond that forms when a determined teacher refuses to give up on what most people at the time believed to be a hopeless child. The play vividly showcases Keller’s emergence from a world of isolation into a world of human connection where a career as a writer, lecturer and activist awaits. The events Keller and Sullivan experience together are nothing short of miraculous for both women.
