The Tony Award Winning Play of 1952. Best Play! Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy starred on Broadway in this moving chronicle of a husband and wife from their wedding night in 1890 until they leave the house that has been their home, 35 years later. They fret and quarrel, laugh, cry, and make love in the same room in which they began their married life. And standing throughout the evening is the old fourposter, silent witness to it all. "The best comedy of the season."

The Miracle Worker
Tony Award Winner 1960 - Best Play! Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic story tells the tale 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.

At The Abbeville Opera House, we are committed to giving you the very best theatre experience possible from the moment you walk through the door and that includes helping you make informed decisions about which productions to see with your children. Be sure to inquire at the box office if the play is family friendly. In consideration of our many adult patrons, we ask that you do not bring children under the age of six into the theatre - except for our Youth Theatre performances. We appreciate your understanding.
“Get a babysitter. You’ll enjoy the show a whole lot more … and so will the people around you.”
