Margaret (O'Malley) Groth and Henry Groth (Jennifer's paternal grandparents) on their wedding day.
Day 7 of Deck the Haunted Halls brings us the delightful interplay of Jennifer Drinka’s mother and aunt as they tell the story from a winter’s night long ago to warm your spirits and make you wonder about what awaits us in the afterlife. Enjoy!
Jennifer Drinka is above all things a storyteller. She is an aunt and a librarian who believes in the importance of celebrating diversity, fighting for equity, and truly seeing and listening to each other. She is a founding member of Mosaic Players and serves as Board Secretary. Jennifer enjoys life in Antioch, IL with her husband Joe and Timneh African Grey parrot Gracie. She is excited to bring the transformative power of theatre to our community.
"A sad tale’s best for winter ... I have one. Of sprites and goblins.”
Mamillius, Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale
During the month of December, please join the Mosaic Players by the light of our shared virtual screens as we enjoy ghostly tales. Our members will be recording songs, stories, readings, and more. As videos become available, we'll post them here, there, and everywhere. If you have a ghostly tale that you'd like to share, please contact Artistic Director, Rebecca Zellar (firstname.lastname@example.org). 'Tis the season!
