The Orland Park Theatre Troupe’s annual holiday performance will be more personal this year.
The troupe will debut “A Simple Miracle” written by member Bryan Riess from Orland Park.
The play takes place on Christmas Eve, where two brothers who operate an inn first learn the place is about to be sold, and then a blizzard traps a random group of people with them. Among those stranded is an angel.
Riess wears two hats for the actual performance, serving as assistant director and taking on the role of Jack.
“Jack is our hero but he has a long road to travel before he can save the day,” Riess said in a release. “He is thrown into a situation that he’s unprepared for and is surrounded by problems. Jack struggles between what he wants and what is right.”
The performances will be 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 Ravinia Ave. Tickets are $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and students and $9 for children.
