Fredericksburg Theater Company presents “The Miracle Worker”

2_MiracleWorker_PwrPt-682x1024William Gibson’s Tony Award Winning drama powerfully presents the story of Anne Sullivan’s struggle to give Helen Keller the “sight” of life she has lost.

Hired as a governess, to give her untamed, wild charge discipline and purpose in life, Anne Sullivan resorts to dramatic means to break through to the sightless and raging Helen in this profoundly moving play. It’s a dramatic, universal story of the need to be known, to be heard, and finally to be in control of one’s destiny.

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sun at 2 PM.

At the Steve W. Shepherd Theater, 1668 Hwy 87 South.

FTC Presents “The Glass Menagerie” – September 9-25

Tennessee Williams is one of the pillars of post-WWII theater and is considered one of America’s best dramatists. In this gripping masterpiece, Williams is at his best exploring the dynamics between parent and adult children, between siblings, and between dreams and reality.

Set in the 1930s Tom relives, with the audience, a specific memory in his life dealing with his controlling mother, Amanda, and his fragile sister Laura. His mother desperately wants her children to achieve success, but can’t give them the freedom to flourish.

A mother’s smothering love brings this fragile family to its shattering climax.

“Inspecting Carol” by Fredericksburg Theater Company – December 9-18

What better way to spend the holidays than with a play that will have you rolling in the aisles.

It’s Christmas time and a small theater is preparing to bring “A Christmas Carol” to its holiday stage.

At auditions, in walks an unknown actor who is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment of the Arts. The troupe is put into high, farcical gear as they bend over backwards to accommodate the bewildered wannabe actor who is given a role in the holiday production.

Everything that can go wrong goes wrong, hilarity is piled upon hilarity, and the Christmas holiday will never be seen the same way again by this struggling troupe – nor by our audience! Perfect anytime, this is a special family treat at Christmas.
