The Christmas Express
Bring the family to see the Orland Park Theatre Troupe’s production of “The Christmas Express” December 7-8 and stay at the nearby and affordable Motel 6 Alsip Chicago Hotel!
“The Christmas Express” is a family-oriented play about the simple joys of Christmas.
“This is the most hopeless place in the world!” Hilda intones this as she and Satch, her assistant, argue over what time it is. She dreams of faraway places and only finds tedium in running the Holly Railway Station. That is, until Leo Tannenbaum drops in out of nowhere the day before Christmas Eve. Suddenly, an old radio that hasn’t worked in years springs to life, the local group of carolers (which usually yowls like a gang of wet cats) begins to sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the whole town gets the Christmas spirit. Coincidence? Or is Leo doing all this? Even Satch changes his tune when it turns out that Leo might be on the run. This nostalgic theatrical greeting card is full of eccentric, small town characters, wise-cracking their way to finding the true wonder of Christmas. And on the way, they make us all wish we could take a ride on “The Christmas Express.”
The Orland Park Theatre is located at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14600 Ravinia Avenue. For tickets to see “The Christmas Express,” call (708) 403-7275.
