THE STORY

Immortalized onstage and screen, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller.  Trapped in a silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is frustrated and at times violent.  Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and a spirit waiting to be rescued with the utterance of the single word “water”. 

Adult auditions will consist of a cold read from the script.  Those girls auditioning for Helen will be asked to perform a guided pantomime.  Other children will do a cold read from the script.
