Opening Soon Miracle Worker

Lofte Community Theatre to Present

The Miracle Worker  


Manley, Neb., May 15, 2018 -- The Lofte Community Theatre, located in Manley, NE will stage William Gibson’s award-winning drama, The Miracle Worker June 1 - 3, and June 7 - 10.

 Set in 1880s, Tuscumbia, Alabama 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 from the dark, tortured silence.

 Over the years, the play has also successfully been adapted for screen and television. Most notably, the 1962 film adaptation which garnered Oscar wins for both Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke.

 “Staging The Miracle Worker has been a labor of love.” said Lofte Community Theatre Executive Director, Kevin Colbert. “As plays go, The Miracle Worker is already a heavy piece of literature. Add to that, the complicated staging which must be timed perfectly, and you have some wonderfully challenging obstacles that any actor would love to sink their teeth into. It’s just been a lot of fun, and a lot of learning..”

 The cast of The Miracle Worker includes Gary Williams, John Bell, Emma Johnson, Riley Perez, Rachel Radloff and Skyler Radloff of Omaha, Rosalie Duffy, Gabriella Bakirane, Cathy Apolot, Wade Mumford, Nicholas Roth, and Brenna J. Thompson of Lincoln, Kyler Jones, Beatrice Quam, and Sarah G. Riha of Louisville, Melinda Mead, and Addison Broderson of Plattsmouth, Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water, Lilly Frields of Nebraska City, and Lily Pope of Eagle.

 Tickets for The Miracle Worker can purchased by calling the Lofte Community Theatre box office at 402-234-2553, or by visiting the theatre’s website at www.lofte.com and clicking on “Tickets”. Curtain time for the show is 7 pm and Sunday matinees are at 2 pm. For more information, call the Lofte Community theatre or visit www.lofte.com.
