Winter Season 2015-2016 Season
Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS
This chilling tale based on the classic Hitchcock film has been widely produced in Chicago and played at the Guthrie Theatre. The story of the mysterious masses of birds that have begun to violently attack at high tide, driving strangers to take refuge in an isolated, abandoned house by the sea, now makes its way to the Abbeville Opera House. As the number of survivors begin to dwindle, they form a bond to survive their haunting new circumstance. With no electricity and scarce food, the tension escalates and hope wanes. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seats.

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.
