The Ghent Playhouse Presents, Miracle on South Division Street

Screen Shot 2019-02-08 at 10.12.31 AM
The Ghent Playhouse’s 2019 season is off and running with Miracle on South Division Street.

Clara Nowak, of Buffalo, NY, and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942, when the Blessed Mother appeared to their grandfather in his barbershop! Since then the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. When daughter Ruth announces her plans to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know,” a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.

The Ghent Playhouse‘s Annual Panto is now running. This year’s show is ‘The Elves and The Shoemaker’.

“Buckle up” for mayhem and hilarity, as we meet a down-on-his-luck shoemaker and two magical elves who just want to “help,” in this comical fracturing of yet another classic fairy tale, as only those zany Pantoloons can do.

Psychic Medium, Deborah Hanlon at Club Helsinki

Psychic medium Deborah Hanlon, who specializes in connecting people with loved ones who have passed on, will be in Hudson.

Hanlon was named Favorite Psychic Medium in About.com’s Reader’s Choice Awards in 2012. Hanlon discovered she has the ability to connect with dead people in August 2001. She has since provided readings for over 3,000 people all over the country.

Hanlon attributes most of her ability to events early on in her life, mainly the illness and death of her 4-year-old brother, Christopher, when she was only 3. Hanlon believes that it was because she was so young and still so open that she knew very early on that her brother did not “die” as everyone else saw it; she knew Christopher was always still around.
