Enjoy an afternoon of Broadway favorites as The Orland Park Theatre Troupe presents their Broadway Memory Lane dinner show on Sunday, July 23 and 30 at Orland Chateau, 14500 S. La Grange Road.

The music and dance show will feature songs from a variety of popular Broadway shows, including ‘Hello Dolly', ‘The Sound of Music,' and ‘Grease.' The cast features 30 area singers of all ages, many hailing from Orland Park.

The two-hour show is produced and directed by Orland Park's Frann Carnivele with Michael Barr-Schinzel serving as musical director.

"This show is all song and dance for a total of 24 numbers, 12 in each act," said Carnivele. "We try to do a Broadway review every other year and this is Orland Park Theatre Troupe's fifth review show."

Broadway Memory Lane will showcase the music from over 25 Broadway shows and also features two medleys.

"Our musical director put together our two medleys," said Carnivele. "He chose six songs that would work best together and composed medleys based on them."

The Orland Park cast includes Heather AnCel, Caroline Bueche, Carson Callis, Sarah Callis, Frann Carnivele, Jen Carroll, Gary Felicetti, Maia Hawksworth, Madeline Jeleniewski, Joanna Leafblad, Josephine Leafblad, Savanna Manning, Alysah Martin, Zoe Martinkus, Sheri McCabe, Declan Mulvey, Nicolette Mutnansky, Sophia Pazooki, Alexa Scalise, Naomi Turk, Madeline Zenner, Annette Ziaja.

The cast also features Aron Arellano and Michael Barr-Schinzel from Chicago; Cayla Bradley of Frankfort; Tom Cameron of Palos Hills; Brianna Gancarek from New Lenox; Suzanne Hamilton of Homer Glen; Andrew Moravec of Oak Forest; and Alexandria Reese from Mokena.

"It's very exciting to have such a new group of faces and people to work with. That says a lot in itself about our group," Carnivele said. "It's always great to have new people. Most of the new people in our show saw ‘Beauty and the Beast' or other shows and were thrilled to be casted."

Broadway Memory Lane runs for two weekends and is open to all ages. Doors open at the Orland Chateau at 12:30 p.m. with dinner being served at 1 p.m. The show begins at 2:30 p.m.

Orland Park Theatre Troupe's Broadway Memory Lane dinner theater show includes dinner (choose between stuffed chicken, orange roughy, roast sirloin or a vegetarian option), soup, salad, vegetables, potatoes, dessert, and coffee, tea or soda. A cash bar will also be available.

"The Orland Park Theatre Troupe delivers incredibly entertaining shows, and the level of talent is also so impressive," said Trustee Pat Gira, chair of the village's Parks and Recreation Committee. "The Broadway Memory Lane dinner show is the perfect indoor summer treat."
