Audition for Miracles on South Division Street




The Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for

Miracle on South Division Street
By Thomas Dudzick

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.

Auditions will be held
Sunday, September 10 from 5:00 – 7:00p.m.
Monday, September 11 from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
There is No Pay

The play runs November 10, 11, 12 and 17, 18 and 19


THE NOWAK FAMILY OF BUFFALO, NY (“Buffalo accent” not required.):

CLARA: Late 60’s, family matriarch. Lovably forward and direct. No-nonsense, says
what’s on her mind. Born in Poland, came to Buffalo as an infant. Still lives in the same urban Buffalo neighborhood. There is a charmingly naïve “old world peasant” air about her.


BEVERLY: Late 30s. Eldest daughter. Loud, outspoken, opinionated. Her mother’s
daughter. Avid bowler. Product of her urban environment. Sarcastic, wickedly funny.

RUTH: Mid-30s. Middle daughter. A bit gangly, awkward, not the type men throw
themselves at. But with an appealing energy and spark. Very intelligent and a little
classier than her siblings. Aspiring actress, wants to move to New York City.

JIMMY: 30-ish. The baby. Simple but witty guy who enjoys needling his sisters. A
garbageman, happy in his work. Loves living in Buffalo. Big heart, kind disposition

Auditions will be held at 129 Main St, West Chicago.

Walk-ins welcomed. Monologues not required but will be heard. Auditions will be sides from the script
