SENECA FALLS, NY, February 14, 2019
Seneca Community Players announced today that the first show of their upcoming 47th season will be Miracle on South Division Street.
A reflection of his Buffalo, NY roots, this blue collar comedy written by Tom Dudzick is a warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of a family’s struggle with a changing world. Ever since that miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop, the Nowak family has long held the belief that their family was specially chosen by God. Intent on sharing the news of this miracle, daughter Ruth plans to write and star in a one women show so the whole world will know about this beacon of hope amidst the urban rubble.
Directed by John King or Waterloo NY, Miracle on South Division Street will be presented in the Academy Square, North Park Theater on March 22, 23, 24 and March 29, 30 and 31.
