AUDITIONS 2021-2022

Director Lou Garza will hold open auditions for the S.T.A.G.E., Inc. 2020-2021 season production of THE MIRACLE WORKER, a drama by WILLIAM GIBSON.  Auditions will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 15, 2021 at Krause House Theatre, 1300 Bulverde Road in Bulverde.
Performers are needed for the following roles: (The parts of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan have been precast with Jenna Shea and Lisa Rene Garza.)
KATE KELLER is the mother of Helen Keller and the second, considerably younger wife of Captain Arthur Keller. A kind and loving woman, Kate is a loyal mother to Helen.
CAPTAIN ARTHUR KELLER is the gruff, middle-aged patriarch of the Keller family. He’s frequently confused about what’s going on, and seems much less sensitive to the needs of the rest of his family than Kate.
JAMES KELLER is the adult son of Arthur Keller from his first marriage. Helen Keller is James’s half-sister, and Kate Keller is his stepmother. For most of the play, James is a laconic, wisecracking cynic.
AUNT EV is the sister of Captain Arthur Keller. A minor character in the play, she is nonetheless a staple character around the Keller household, taking care of Helen or making her dolls.
ANAGNOS is the director of the Perkins Institute for the Blind. In the play, Anagnos is Annie Sullivan’s teacher. He has known her since she was a child, and worked closely with her.
THE DOCTOR who treats Helen Keller’s fever as an infant, shortly before it is discovered that Helen has lost her sight and hearing.
DR. HOWE a prominent doctor who tries and fails to teach Helen Keller prior to Annie’s arrival.
VINEY a black housekeeper/nanny who works for the Keller family.

PERCY Viney’s son who is just a bit older than Helen. Helen likes him, and when he’s older he helps Annie Sullivan to take care of and teach Helen in the garden house.                                                                                                                                                                         

This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water.”

The story of two aging men, Max and John, neighbors who have been feuding for most of their lives. Invigorated by their shared affection for their new neighbor across the street, the beautiful, eccentric, and charming Ariel, they face-off as romantic rivals until their hilarious shenanigans finally bring about a resolution to their long-standing differences. Based on the 1993 film, which starred Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, and Ann-Margret, this stage adaptation captures the lovably crotchety characters through twinkling humor, great songs, and the affectionate depiction of a small town that feels like home to everyone.
