The Miracle Worker

Wednesday, March 21 at 9:00 am

The Miracle Worker is the story of Helen Keller, deaf and blind from the age of two, and how Keller's teacher/governess, Annie Sullivan, breaks through the isolation imposed by Helen’s complete lack of language, allowing young Helen to blossom as she learns to communicate. Helen and Annie’s story is one of perseverance in the face of daunting obstacles, hope in the midst of despair, and the power in each of us to surpass perceived limitations.

Wiesenthal

Friday, April 13 at 9:00 am

Wiesenthal is the stunning true story of acclaimed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal.

A concentration camp survivor himself, Simon Wiesenthal was relentless in his dedication to justice for the more than six million men, women, and children murdered in the Holocaust. His story, laced with sorrow, joy, and sometimes humor, inspires all of us stand up for what is right, and to remember history, so that we will not repeat it.
