SULPHUR SPRINGS – Open auditions for Main Street Theatre’s production of “Over the River and Through the Woods,” a comedy by Joe DiPietro, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 4 through Aug. 6. The comedy, directed by Brenda Payne, needs three men and three women. Four of these cast members will be playing grandparents.
THE STORY: Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That does not 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. The job he's been waiting for would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely, and single, Caitlin O'Hare as bait…
Backstage Magazine calls “Over the River and Through the Woods” a hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long-running musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change.”
Star-Ledger says this play is "Loaded with laughs every step of the way."
Performances will be Sept. 18-27.
