Miracle on South Division Street

August 8 @ 7:30 pm - August 10 @ 7:30 pm

The 2019 Summer Theatre Festival at The Playhouse at White Lake (formerly Howmet Playhouse) happens every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from July 11 through August 24! All shows begin at 7:30pm (unless otherwise noted).
August 8 – 10, it’s “Miracle on South Division Street” by Tom Dudzick, directed by Bryan Engler!
Meet the Nowaks of Buffalo, NY. Clara and her three grown kids 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.
Theater Box Office hours are 1:00pm – 5:00pm weekdays, and one hour before curtain. Season Passes are your best value.  Make a single purchase, and then pick and choose the plays you wish to attend. Single show tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for students.
Content Advisory: The Playhouse does not offer advisories about subject matter, as sensitivities vary from person to person.  If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness, or stage effects (such as strobe lights or theatrical fog) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact them at (231) 894-4048 or through their website.
The 2019 Summer Theatre Festival is made possible by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs.
