Auditions begin for ‘The Miracle Worker’ at Beacon of H.O.P.E.

Nichole Pichon, Pine Island Playhouse coordinator, announced auditions for the play, "The Miracle Worker," will be held Monday, March 3, and Tuesday, March 4, from 7-8 p.m. at the Beacon of H.O.P.E.

"The Miracle Worker" is a dramatic work derived from Helen Keller's autobiography. The story is about Keller, who became both deaf and blind after she was stricken with an illness when she was 9 months old, and her relationship with Annie Sullivan, the teacher who introduced her to education, activism and international stardom.

Reviews for the first three plays were outstanding. One Pine Island Eagle letter writer said, "If you missed the Pine Island Playhouse presentation of 'Little Women,' you missed a very special event on Pine Island. Nichole Pichon's cast and crew did an amazing job putting on this two-hour production. What more can I say. I only hope there will be many more productions in the future."

A recent letter to the editor about the most recent play "Alice In Wonderland" said, "I am smiling, happy and enthused. I just saw 'Alice in Wonderland' at the Fishers of Men Lutheran Church on Stringfellow. It was delightful entertainment, very cleverly and imaginatively done, using people as props. The costumes were fascinating and closely connected to the original illustrations of the original Alice ..."
