JASPER — The Montana Repertory Theatre will present “The Miracle Worker” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Jasper Arts Center.
“The Miracle Worker” tells the story of Helen Keller who, deaf and blind since infancy, finds her way into the world of knowledge and understanding with the help of Anne Sullivan, her gifted tutor. In some of the most turbulent and emotion-packed scenes ever presented on stage, Keller overcomes rage and confusion to triumph over her physical disabilities.
The production features actors Jim Gall, Theresa Diekhans, Lily Gladstone, Hannah Appel, Caitlin McRae and Nick Pavelich.
With this production, the Montana Repertory Theatre continues its exploration of great American stories that penetrate the core of human experience. Touring since 1968, MRT is one of the oldest and most respected touring companies in the country. Over the past several years the troupe has presented such classics as “Bus Stop,” “Doubt,” “To Kill a Mockingbird, which played in Jasper in 2009, and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” across the country.
