The Miracle Worker

leave a comment »

It’s a Miracle! My high school’s spring play is The Miracle Workerthe astounding true story of Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan.  The play is really amazing and moving. Just having a part in this play is really an honor.  Much of the play is devoted to Helen’s learning , and tantrums, not to mention struggling over personal obstacles in your life. I’ve been going to many rehearsals preparing for opening night only a month away.

” ‘She is like a little safe, lockedthat no one can open. Perhaps there is a treasure inside.’                                                    ‘Maybe it’s emptey, too?’ ”                                                        

 

Probably the most acclaimed scenes in the play are the Breakfast scene:

And the Wah-Wah scene:

Blind

leave a comment »

Living in a constant state of fear, not knowing where you are, what direction you’re facing, not knowing your friends hair or eye color. A big scary world. At school I am in the school play, The Miracle Worker.  Just to let every one know The miracle Worker is about Helen Keller, and her teacher Annie Sullivan .I have a tiny part but still, it’s a lot of work. My character is blind, so today the director took all the blind girls, blindfolded us, than proceeded to terrify us by running us all over the auditorium, and making us find a certain person on stage.  Not fun. Well actually, though terrifying, and hoping you don’t fall off the stage, it kind was, like a roller coaster spinning around, doing loop de loops,in the dark.

Yeah, all in all a preatty scary world for a blind person.

Questions and Answers

Where’s The Wii – I already have everything worth having for my Wii, and don’t want any of the games out at this time.

 

Music Game  – Yes, they can be muy expensive but also quite fun in large groups of people. Rock Band 2 has more downloadable content though Guitar Hero (4) has a better start track list. Tupples would enjoy this greatly but would rather have more games then just this one though this in addition would be nice.

 

Where Should I Buy These? – The Tupples suggests that you buy from, Best Buy, Gamestop, www.gamestop.com, www.amazon.com, or www.ebay.com. Most of the games will be easiest to find at gamestop but for the Nintendo 64 games it will be easiest off of Amazon or Ebay.

 

What If Relatives Ask… “What Does Will Want.” – Well right now I’m a little peckish so fruit cake (Pannettone) will do nicely. No, Not Really. Heres Items that Can Be Subsitituted: (2) Xbox 360 Controllers, $20, Gamestop Gift Cards, Xbox Live Point Cards (NOT MONTH CARDS POINTS FOR BUYING FROM ONLINE STORE), Tales of Vesperia, or what they choose.

 

Whats The Purpose of this list? – To help you the mother find the right things for your loving Tupples this Christmas.

 

Used Games- If your going to buy used games from gamestop Tup-Tup can give you his member card so you can save 10% on all used games. (New Games get nothing off)
