Live theater will get livelier when the Village of Orland Park Theatre Troupe presents its mystery production of, "And The Killer Is…" Audience participation is a key element of the troupe's summer show that includes hors d'oeuvres, desserts and a cash bar.

"This is a great, local night out," said Orland Park Recreation Program Supervisor Stephanie Simpson, executive producer for the show. "It's a great show with a great cast and you can enjoy hors d'oeuvres and desserts plus a cash bar," she said.

Orland Park's production is directed by Frann Carnivele-Sidlow with Bryan Riess serving as assistant director. Cast members include Rudy Chavez, Felicia Faifer, Alexis Lubienski, Mark Lubienski, Jim Mazeika, Melanie Stanko and Sharon Stolarz.

It's springtime and the smell of award shows is in the air with the Oscars and Emmys. But perhaps the most anticipated awards show of all is the one that will be produced by the Bit-Players and Extras Academy.

Performances are Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m., at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 Ravinia Avenue.

"And The Killer Is…" is about an awards show where less than skilled actors vie for the coveted BEAT ME award. They must make their mark in a few brief seconds on the screen without the benefit of dialogue.

"We're looking forward to the audience being an active part of this show," Carnivele-Sidlow said. "That's what makes this production so much fun --- we never know where it's going to go," she added.

"Many of the cast members are long time Orland Park Theatre Troupe participants and they all have refined comedic acting skills. It promises to be a great show," Carnivele-Sidlow added.

Tickets are $25 per person and include hors d'oeuvres and dessert with a cash bar available. Tickets may be purchased at the Orland Park Recreation Administration Building, 14600 South Ravinia Avenue. For more information, call the Village of Orland Park Recreation Department at 708/403-7275.
