Friday June 26, 2020 - Saturday July 11, 2020

As of now, The Miracle Worker Play will open June 26 and go through July 11, if state regulations at that time allow. This year also marks Keller's 140th birthday. She was born June 27, 1880. Instead of a six-weekend season there will be three weekends of performances.

The home and grounds have been closed since mid-March due to COVID-19 concerns and in compliance with state mandates. Board president, Buddy Whitlock, said the decision was made after much consideration and discussion.

"(The board) knows how much the cast has poured into this, and it's a wonderful, long-running tradition," Whitlock said.

"If the state still doesn't have things shut down and we can do it, we feel like we need to. This is far enough out, and we can always revisit the plan if we need to."

The outside venue is a large enough space, Whitlock said, that spacing between audience members shouldn't be an issue. Instead of a crowd of 600 people, social distancing could require that only 200 to 300 be in the audience.
