The Miracle Worker
Knight-time players will present their spring play, April 19, 20, 21 at 7 p.m. in the Eisenhower auditorium. The play, "The Miracle Worker" by William Gibson, is the story of Helen Keller. Helen, played by Kayla Kuppertz, was rendered deaf and blind due to an illness at the age of one. Helen's parents, (Carley Younger and Mitch Stenberg) are desperate to help Helen who by the age of five is totally out of control. They hire a young girl by the name of Annie Sullivan, played by Kelsie Morine, who through perseverance and love manages to break through Helen's isolation and teach her language. The play is very moving and the sets and costumes are incredible. Other members of the cast include Kyle Covert, Aiyana Sotomyor, Connor Younger, Kaity Kotar, Ty Christensen, Cody Clark, Liz Duvall, Krystal Oaks, Sharon Harrington, Chrissy Brunecz, Brittany Schreiber, Kaitlyn Blake, Lacey Rowley, Nikki Eckman, Kaitlyn Oaks.

Lists and tickets will also be available in the main office at Eisenhower High School. The drawings will be Saturday at the last performance.
