Are you staying the upcoming weekend at The Empress and looking for a bit of extra entertainment? How about going to The Weekend Theater
For those who enjoy the magical world of live theater, The Weekend Theater is a unique black-box theater at the corner of 7th and Chester Streets in Little Rock, Arkansas. The audience can enjoy the intimacy of the small theater in a wonderful, comfortably remodeled theater House with a new stage lighting system to bring The Weekend Theater productions to life. The Weekend Theater is decidedly New York in character – apartments upstairs, theater downstairs, pizza joint/microbrewery across one street, and the local fire station across the other!
Currently playing at The Weekend Theater isThe Miracle Worker By William Gibson. The show finishes up it’s run on March 23, 24.
One determined person can make a world of difference, even save a life – and if you’ve ever doubted that, then William Gibson’s classic play “The Miracle Worker” will convince you otherwise. It is the story of how teacher Annie Sullivan opened up the world of blind, deaf, and mute Helen Keller. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through March 24. Tickets, $16 for general admission and $12 for students and seniors age 65 and older, can be ordered online at the theater’s Web site, www.weekendtheater.org, or purchased at the door before each performance, based on availability.
