By | July 10, 2019

The Merry MAC Players, in conjunction with the Martinsville Arts Council, and by special arrangement with the Samuel French Company, will host open auditions July 22 & 23 for “The Miracle Worker,” by William Gibson. 

Directed by Joan Kimbley, this captivating drama, tells the story of six year old Helen Keller, left blind, deaf and mute by an illness in infancy.  Helen’s world is silent, dark and isolating, as she has little communication with those who love her. Desperate to reach their child, Helen’s parents enlist the aid of Annie Sullivan.  Through many struggles, both with Helen and her family, Annie is finally able to break through Helen’s barriers.

The Merry MACs are looking for a diverse group of individuals to fill the cast.  There are numerous roles available for children and adults of both genders, and different ethnicities.  Stage ages range from five to over fifty. For more detailed role information visit Experience is preferred but not necessary.

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be at the Depot, 210 N. Marion St., Martinsville. Rehearsals will be in the evening, with dates to be determined.  The show runs weekends from Sept.13-22. Friday and Saturday performances are in the evenings and Sunday performances are matinees.
