Sunday, March 23, 2014 – 7:30pm
Montana Repertory Theatre
The Miracle Worker
Click here to learn more about The Miracle Worker.
Few stories are as timeless or reveal the courage and resilience of the human spirit as well as The Miracle Worker. Helen Keller, deaf and blind since infancy, finds her way to knowledge and understanding with the help of Anne Sullivan, her gifted tutor. This stirring dramatization has been mesmerizing audiences for decades. In some of the most emotion-packed scenes ever presented on stage, Helen overcomes rage and confusion to triumph over her physical disabilities. Join us as we explore through theatre the heart of character and the mystery of courage. The Miracle Worker is a story of victory over unbelievable odds accomplished through perseverance and love, and is being performed by Montana Repertory Theatre, the same company whose previous performances at Stocker have included Bus Stop (2010-2011 season) and Lost in Yonkers (2006-2007 season). www.montanarep.org/miracle_worker.html To see amazing rare footage from 1930 of Helen Keller speaking with the help of Anne Sullivan, click here www.wimp.com/helenkeller
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." - Helen Keller
"So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good." - Helen Keller
Saturday, April 12, 2014 – 7:30pm
Let your hair down and Let The Sun Shine In as Hair, the original Broadway Rock-Musical that defined an era, comes to Stocker Arts Center. Hair is a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through the tumultuous 1960s America. This exuberant musical about searching for truth, peace and love in Vietnam War-era America continues to strike a resonant chord with audiences of all ages. The themes and struggles in Hair seem as vital and relevant today. The long list of chart-topping hit songs include Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine in, Good Morning, Starshine and Easy to be Hard, became anthems of counter-culture and the sexual revolution and continue to have a profound impact on audiences. www.obbnyc.com/#hair

We’re again offering MVP Valet parking on a prepaid basis for $5/per car (not including tip). You can pre-purchase Valet tickets up to 1 week prior to the performance – or when you buy your subscription. The Valet tickets indicate which show they are good for, so just bring the ticket with you when you come to that show. No worries about the weather, how crowded the lots will be or how far away you’ll have to park! You can pre-purchase Valet parking for 1 show for $5 - or for all 6 shows for only $30. Or, you can decide at the last moment to let the MVP Valets park your car – they will accept cash payment the night of the show. You can always still choose to park your car and take advantage of our free parking. It’s up to you! No additional ticket handling fee is added when you purchase a Valet Parking ticket.
