From spunky "Little Miss Sunshine" to an even more heroic young girl.

Abigail Breslin will play Helen Keller in the first Broadway revival of William Gibson's "The Miracle Worker," scheduled to open March 3 at Circle in the Square Theatre.

Alison Pill will portray Annie Sullivan, the determined instructor who teaches the deaf and blind Helen how to communicate.

Producer David Richenthal (RICH'-in-thall) says the production will begin preview performances Feb. 12.

"The Miracle Worker" will be the 13-year-old Breslin's Broadway debut. Among her other films are "Signs" and "Zombieland," currently in release.
