CRESTVIEW — "Hello Dolly" it ain't.

The View From the Stage community theatre troupe has chosen one of American theatre's most challenging shows for their fourth production.

"The Miracle Worker," William Gibson's inspirational 1959 drama, brings local audiences the story of Annie Sullivan, who is hired to tutor the near-feral Helen Keller.

It is a triumphant story of the human spirit.

It is also a risk.

Are local audiences ready for a meaty show without hummable tunes or madcap door-slamming?

Producer Berit Faust thinks both the company and its audience are ready for serious drama.
