Acting nomination boosts career
By JANINE CALSBEEK
PASADENA, CA – A Tony nomination!
It required a circuitous path. This happens often: an actor moves from her long-time home and stage to start something new… and she gets called back for an audition.
But Cora Vander Broek had more than an audition back in Chicago. She was cast in Linda Vista and performed the show in Chicago, then Los Angeles – and finally, last fall, on Broadway.
And on Thursday, Vander Broek won a Tony nomination.
Her Christian roots tell her to hold onto her humility, she said. But she’s thankful. She’s celebrating. She will delight in that virtual awards ceremony later this year.
“Then I’ll put it away,” she said, and get back to work.
“Never a straight line”
Vander Broek spent her early years in Honduras, where her parents Tom and Diane worked for Mission Aviation Fellowship. She returned to her mom’s hometown for 8th grade, then spent 9th in Honduras with her family and their newly adopted little boy, Michael. Back at MOC-Floyd Valley High for her last three years, Vander Broek knew one extracurricular that she could do – she had loved the skits that teachers introduced in Ahuas.
“Theatre was a place where I belonged.”
Todd McDonald and Gail Marincovich were “beautiful mentors” at MOC-FV High, and she starred as Emily in Our Town.
Then she majored in theatre at Northwestern. Her mom had asked Northwestern’s Karen Barker to give feedback to Vander Broek prior to high school speech contest, young Cora knew Jeff Barker from church and she got acquainted with Keith Allen. She longed to be rooted, and NWC’s theatre program was excellent.
She graduated with an NWC theatre major in 2000.
