About The Play


This classic drama tells the true story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker, by William Gibson, dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge, and demonstrates that the human spirit can triumph over even the most daunting of disabilities. 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. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: "water".

Scripts and Audition information are available in K009 or PAC1. Performance dates are November 6, 7, 12, 13, and 14 @ 7 PM, and November 14 @ 2 PM, in the STUDIO THEATRE. Tickets go on sale November 2nd. Don’t miss Sheldon’s production of this award winning play!

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically.  Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos.  Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
