Bayou Playhouse schedules additional performances for The Miracle Worker

Bayou Playhouse schedules additional performances for The Miracle Worker

Due to overwhelming demand, the Bayou Playhouse has scheduled two additional performances to its current running hit production of William Gibson's southern classic, The Miracle Worker, a play based on Helen Keller's autobiography, The Story of My Life. Additional performances will include a June 6 Saturday matinee at 2:30 pm and an evening performance on Sunday June 7 at 7:30 pm.

"The Miracle Worker has sold out every performance since it's May 15 opening and tickets sales for the final weekend are so strong that there was an overwhelming request by our patrons to add more shows," said Bayou Playhouse Artistic Director Perry Martin. "We were more than happy to accommodate their request. It's some of the best work we've presented and adding more dates for more patrons to see this production is one of the best problems a theatre can have."

This Bayou Playhouse production of The Miracle Worker, which reviewers called "Brilliant with unexpected humor" - The Times Picayune & WYES, Stepping' Out said "...gut wrenching performances" is the powerful, heart-warming story of blind-deaf Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan, the teacher who through persistence, love & stubbornness rescued young Helen from a life of isolation & darkness into the light forever. Adapted into an Oscar Award winning film starring Anne Bancroft & Patty Duke, The Miracle Worker was the first play directed by Perry Martin 28 years & 130 productions ago.

The Miracle Worker will run at the Bayou Playhouse on Friday June 5 and run through Sunday June 7, 2015. Tickets prices are $25 in advance online or $27 at the door. Performances run Friday, Saturday & Sunday evening at 7:30 pm with Saturday & Sunday matinees at 2:30 pm.
