Theatre Performance of Teacher, Enter Annie Sullivan

Sunday, November 28, 2021

Teacher, Enter Annie Sullivan, is an all-ages play written and performed Ghost Light Theatre, a group of young actors from Beaumont. The show is sponsored by the Beaumont Performance Arts Collective and hosted at RuminariLive.

Anne Sullivan began her studies at the Perkins School for the Blind on October 7, 1880.  Although her rough manners made her first years at Perkins humiliating for her, she managed to progress with her learning.   While she was there, she befriended and learned the manual alphabet from Laura Bridgman, a graduate of Perkins and the first blind and deaf person to be educated at the school. Also while there, she had a series of eye operations that significantly improved her vision. In June 1886, Anne Sullivan graduated at age 20 as the valedictorian of her class.  That same year she entered Helen Keller's life. And that is where this story begins.

The concept of seeing an unseen world (and the challenge of helping someone to see it) is brought out in ways that are profound yet accessible by this all-female cast ages 12-18.
