Theatre Arts


The Theatre Arts program provides students with both the theory and practical experience necessary for either employment in beginning levels of professional theatre or transfer to a theatre arts major in a four-year institution. Various productions are offered to provide students with a broad range of practical training.

The Theatre Arts program is designed to give the serious theatre student the theory, applied training, and performing experience required for employment in the industry. Another positive program feature is that our professional faculty transmits a passion for theatre to the student.

This historic docudrama written by playwright William Gibson takes place in and around the Keller homestead in Tuscumbia, Alabama.  The time period is 1900-1910.  Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued.

5 men, 5 women plus 8 girls and 1 boy and 1 dog
