A stage play that was well-received in Kershaw earlier this year is back for a second running in Lancaster County.

“Miracles!” is a comedy-drama that centers on issues dealing with HIV/AIDS, and how a person leans toward family support and faith for strength. Showtime is 7 p.m. Saturday at Lancaster High School.

The original play is written by Shelia Burris-Buchanan of Rock Hill. Cast members are from Lancaster, Rock Hill and Charlotte.

The cast performed “Miracles!” at Andrew Jackson High School in April. Since then, they’ve had shows in Chester and Cheraw.

Burris-Buchanan said the group knew they wanted to come back to Lancaster County as soon as they performed in Kershaw.

“It was so well received,” Burris-Buchanan said. “We can’t wait to do it. We’ve had so many requests to come back.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for Saturday’s show. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door.

Advance tickets can be bought at Living Word Christian Bookstore, 101 S. White St., or Joann’s Hair Styling, 131 E. Marion St., in Kershaw.

Those who attend Saturday’s play can expect to be entertained, informed and motivated at the same time, Burris-Buchanan said. The play should spark much conversation afterward, she said.

“Expect to go away with a different mindset about our society,” she said. “Expect to be moved.”

For tickets or more details about the play, call Steve Fair at (704) 622-3800 or Stephanie Stinson at 804-2105.
