Wayne State’s Black and Gold Performing Arts Series is set to host the Montana Repertory Theatre’s 2014 national tour performance of “The Miracle Worker’’ by William Gibson.

The performance is scheduled for Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Ramsey Theater.

Tickets to the show are free with campus ID or activity tickets, now available at the Information Desk in the Student Center.

The performance will bring to life the story of Helen Keller and her struggles with being disabled.

Helen’s tutor, Annie Sullivan, works with her to overcome the hardships of being disabled.

“The Miracle Worker” not only shows the struggles of Helen Keller, but her entire family’s struggle to communicate with their daughter, sister and niece.

A story of triumph against seemingly insurmountable odds, “The Miracle Worker” shows what can be accomplished with faith, dedication and love.

Montana Repertory Theatre was established in 1968 as a professional touring company. Recently, it has presented an excess of 450 shows in over 350 towns across the United States.
