SNELLVILLE -- The New London Theatre in Snellville is presenting "The Miracle Worker" now through June 24.

The dramatic story tells the tale of Helen Keller, who is blind, deaf and mute. Pitied and spoiled by her parents, the character runs wild at home until the Kellers hire Anne Sullivan to serve as a governess and teacher for their young daughter. After several fierce battles with Helen, Anne convinces her parents she needs two weeks alone with the girl.

In that time, she teaches her discipline and language through the use of touch.
