ELLENVILLE — SHADOWLAND STAGES announced complete casting for its upcoming holiday offering - Miracle on South Division Street by Tom Dudzick, to be directed by Brendan Burke. Miracle on South Division Street will be performed in The MainStage at SHADOWLAND STAGES (157 Canal Street, Ellenville, NY 12428) on a special holiday schedule: Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm from December 2nd - 18th.
OY VEY, MARIA!
In Miracle on South Division Street we meet the Nowak family of Buffalo - Clara and her three grown kids - who have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop! Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ 20-foot commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know!” However, as her plans for theatrical immortality unfold, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.
