Orland Park Theatre Troupe to present

‘High School Musical’ April 26-28

Submitted by Village of

Orland Park

The 2006 Disney film

favorite, “High School

Musical,” is coming to the

Orland Park stage.

The Orland Park Theatre

Troupe is to perform

the show April 26-28 at

the Sandburg High School

Performing Arts Center.

Patricia Domico, of Orland

Park, is one of the two

adults in the show and portrays

Ms. Darbus, the high

school drama teacher.

Kaitlyn Samawi, of Orland

Park, portrays Gabriella

Montez.

“Sometimes, we talk about

politics and it’s OK. That’s

neat. There’s a genuine

safety there, with the differences.

You don’t have

to be afraid to express

what you feel. It may be

different, but there’s a respect

and a warmth and I

think a lot of love.”

Flanagan, a “split-personality

artist” who creates

both representational

and experimental works,

added, “We’re very different,

even in our expression

of art from photo realism

to abstract non-representational.

From a technical

standpoint, we share what

we’ve learned from different

avenues. If we’ve gone

to a course or know about

a sale or a new technique,

we’re always bouncing

those ideas off of each

other.”

Walking through the

second floor gallery, patrons

can appreciate the

vast range of styles represented

by the members of

Art Connections. Morton

Hernandez’s hyper-realistic

portraits hang just feet

from the abstract, fluid

pieces of Bieniek, creating

a striking visual contrast.

Plettau, an Orland Park

resident, started as a pastel

artist before developing

a love of collage, which

is her present medium

“I use all sorts of papers

— some that I find at local

places like Hobby Lobby

up myself with watercolors,

more variety and the more
