THE REVIEW

 

Join us for our next production, “BLITHE SPIRIT”, in the Jake Hoover Theatre!


Opening in 1941, this Noël Coward comedy was an instant hit. As a novelist seeks to gather material for his next novel, by visiting the local, eccentric, clairvoyant and attending a seance, everything backfires as the ghost of his first wife soon begins to haunt him. Tommy Thomas makes his ALLEY THEATRE debut directing what is sure to be a group of comedic geniuses in this hilarious production!

Then, our final production of the season is, “THE MIRACLE WORKER”.
William Gibson’s moving script tells the true story of the blind, deaf, and mute young girl, Helen Keller, and the “miracle” experience when she and her governess/teacher, Annie Sullivan, connected. Originally a “Playhouse 90 Teleplay” the three-act stage play premiered in 1959 with stars Anne Bancroft (Sullivan) and Patty Duke (Keller). Rhonda Tinch-Mize, no stranger to THE ALLEY, directs this wonderful story.
