Through the combined efforts of Tri-City Baptist Church, International Baptist College and Seminary, Tri-City Christian Academy, and the Chandler School of Fine Arts, International Baptist College and Seminary is pleased to announce our fourth annual ministry-wide community theatre production. This means that all of our ministry entities are combining to produce an evening of entertainment that is community friendly--an opportunity to invite friends and family into our building to see a fun show.
Though the task seems daunting, we are confident that the Lord has called us to this endeavor. Our goal is to put forward a performance that will:
This does not mean that all of our productions will be sacred in nature. Frankly, most will not. Because one of our goals is to attract the community, many of our productions will have broad appeal and community "recognize-ability."
1880s, in and around the Keller homestead in Tuscumbia, Alabama
An illness renders infant Helen Keller blind, deaf, and consequently mute. Pitied and badly spoiled by her parents, Helen is taught no discipline and grows into a wild, angry, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. Desperate, the Kellers hire Anne Sullivan to serve as governess and teacher for their daughter. After several fierce battles with Helen, Anne convinces the Kellers that she needs two weeks alone with Helen in order to achieve any progress in the girl's education. In that time, Anne teaches Helen discipline through persistence and consistency. The family is satisfied. But Anne is not. She knows that if she can teach Helen language through hand signals, Helen's life will be forever changed.
Anne: "Obedience without understanding is a blindness, too. She has to learn that everything has its name! That words can be her eyes. What is she without words? With them she can think, have ideas, be reached. There’s not a thought or fact in the world that can’t be hers!"
