For Miracle on South Division Street
Synopsis: Meet the Nowaks of Buffalo, NY. Clara and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous Christmas Eve in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop! Daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write and star in a one-woman Christmas 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.

Clara Nowak (Mom):  Female 60 – 69 :  Born in Poland, but brought to the USA as an infant so there is no accent; charmingly naive Old World peasant air about her, no nonsense; loves her children, but doesn’t always know how to show it.

Beverly Nowak (the eldest):  Female 30 – 39 :  Clara’s eldest daughter, unmarried and outspoken; has no problem sharing her strong opinions; wicked sense of humor, dedicated to her bowling league.

Ruth Nowak (the middle child): Female 30 – 39 :  Clara’s middle child, unmarried, an aspiring actress, gangly and awkward; a little more sophisticated/educated than the rest of her family and longs to move to New York.
