Upcoming Play: "The Miracle Worker"

Our local Christian youth theatre, Players of the Stage, will present William Gibson's The Miracle Worker in April.

Players of the Stage is "bringing light to the world of theater" and seeking to disciple young actors in faith, life, and dramatic skills at the same time. Sharon Barshinger, an interviewee in my "Where Are We Now?" series, directs the company.

This spring the show is The Miracle Worker, a great story of one woman's persistent love for a child (Helen Keller) handicapped by both blindness and deafness. This production features experienced actors who are about to graduate; it promises to be an excellent, moving, funny, high-action performance and a wonderful evening! Helen's blindness and deafness provide a metaphor of spiritual blindness and deafness.

Players of the Stage seeks to use theater to raise money for the needy. Your free-will offerings will benefit the Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, reaching deaf children in a Caribbean society which offers them little help.
