Pen Players Company Members Receive Joseph Jefferson Award Nominations

(Standing, left to right) Joe Foust, Molly Glynn, director Kristine Thatcher, (sitting from left) Erin Noel Grennan and Peggy Roeder are now on stage at Peninsula Players in “Miracle on South Division Street.”

Miracle on South Division Street is now on stage at Peninsula Players through Oct. 20.
All heck breaks loose on South Division Street when a deathbed confession shakes the Nowak family to its core. In 1942 Buffalo, New York, Grandpa Nowak had a vision of peace and the Blessed Mother while working in the family barbershop. Since then, Clara and her three children have kept the faith and tended to Grandpa’s sidewalk shrine, which has been a beacon of hope to the neighbors and given prestige to the family. Unraveling the family legend leads to unexpected and uproarious results.
Pen Players also recently celebrated the announcement of Chicago’s Joseph Jefferson Award nominations with the listing of several current and past company members. The Joseph Jefferson Awards are Chicago theater’s equivalent to Broadway’s Tony Awards. Nominated for their work are Peninsula Players company members Kristine Thatcher, Callie Johnson, Carmen Roman, Nick Keenan, Linda Fortunato, Sarah E. Ross, Jack Magaw, Rachel Laritz, and Emily Waecker.
