Theatre Coppell – The Miracle Worker

October 7 – 9  |  Friday and Saturday 8 pm and Sunday 2:30 pm  |  Coppell Arts Center

The Miracle Worker is a play by William Gibson adapted from his 1957 Playhouse 90 teleplay of the same name. It was based on Helen Keller's 1903 autobiography The Story of My Life.  In Tuscumbia, Alabama, an illness renders infant Helen Keller blind, deaf, and consequently mute.  Pitied and badly spoiled by her parents, Helen is taught no discipline and, by the age of six, grows into a wild, angry, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. Desperate, the Kellers hire Annie Sullivan to serve as governess and teacher for their daughter. After several fierce battles with Helen, Annie convinces the Kellers that she needs two weeks alone with Helen in order to achieve any progress in the girl's education. In this time, Annie teaches Helen discipline through persistence and consistency, and language through hand signals, a double breakthrough that changes Helen's life and has a direct effect on the lives of everyone in the family.

Tickets are $22 for adults and $19 for senior and students at coppellartscenter.org.

National Fire Prevention Week

October 9 - 15  |   Life Safety Park

Join the Coppell Fire Department and the National Fire Prevention Association® (NFPA) in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week™ (FPW). This year’s FPW campaign, “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape™,” works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning. Learn more on the NFPA website
