Press release from HART Theatre:
OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS to grandmother’s house we go. Beginning September 28, HART Theatre presents a heartwarming comedy by Joe Dipietro. Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job in Seattle. When they find out, the results become a hilarious set of attempts to sabotage his attempts to leave. The show ran off Broadway for two years, becoming a major hit.
HART’s production is being directed by Candice Dickinson. Dickinson was one of the leads in Chicago and The Producers. Since then, she has gotten her graduate degree in directing and moved back to help run the family business, Asheville’s Wicked Weed Brewery. Her cast includes: Amanda Klinikowski as Caitlyn, Josiah McManus as Nick, Allison Stinson as Aida, Lyn Donley as Emma, David Spivey as Frank and Pasquale LaCorte as Nunzio.
Over The River And Through The Woods has performances Sept. 28, 29, Oct. 4, 5, 6, 12, 13 at 7:30pm and Sundays Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 & 14 at 2pm.
