Lofte Community Theatre Holds Auditions for The Miracle Worker

Manley, Neb., March 19, 2018 -- The Lofte Community Theatre, located in Manley, NE, just 25 minutes south of Omaha, will hold auditions for William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker April 16 and 17, at 7 pm.

Lofte Community Theatre Executive Artistic Director, says “This piece of theatre is ripe with juicy characters that will really allow local actors to stretch their abilities and bring to life a classic tale.” Set in 1887 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, The Miracle Worker chronicles the true story of Annie Sullivan and her student, Helen Keller.

The play, based on Helen Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life first opened on Broadway in 1959 and starred Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan and Patty Duke as Helen Keller. The duo went on to reprise their roles for the 1962 film adaptation where they went on to win Academy Awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.

Struck by illness in infancy, young Helen Keller is left blind, deaf and mute. With no discipline, by the age of six, Helen has grown into a wild, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. The Kellers hire Annie Sullivan to serve as their daughter’s teacher. After several fierce battles with Helen, Annie convinces the Kellers she needs two weeks alone with Helen in to achieve any progress in the girl's education. During that time, Annie teaches Helen discipline through persistence and consistency and language through hand signals, a double breakthrough that changes Helen's life forever.

Colbert will be casting roles for seven males, and seven females. Additionally, there are roles for several children, who will be cast as blind students. To see all roles available, visit the ‘Get Involved’ page at www.Lofte.org. Those interested in auditioning should come prepared to read from the script. Children auditioning for the role of Helen Keller should come to the audition prepared to move on stage. Please dress appropriately.

For questions regarding auditions contact the Lofte Community Theatre at 402-234-2553, email director Kevin Colbert at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or visit The Lofte Community Theatre’s website at www.Lofte.org and click on “Get Involved”.
