SULPHUR SPRINGS – As the 2014 “Season of Romance” continues, the cast has been set for the upcoming production of “Over the River and Through the Woods” at the Main Street Theatre. Director Brenda Payne said she was pleased with the turnout for auditions as the casting committee “had some tough decisions to make.”
“Over the River and Through the Woods” is a comedy by Joe DiPietro set around an Italian family in New Jersey. Nick’s relationship with his grandparents is suddenly at risk when he’s 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 as bait.
After portraying Big Daddy in the recent production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” John D’Avignon will play the role of Frank.
Sheila Armstrong will play his wife, Aida. This is Armstrong’s second show at the Main Street Theatre, after starring in “The Dixie Swim Club” earlier this year.
Real-life husband and wife team Bill and Beverly Owens will play the stage couple Nunzio and Emma.
These two stage couples are the grandparents of Nick who will be portrayed by Kenneth Batterton.
Two more “Dixie” ladies joining this production are Angie McAnear, who has been cast in the role of Caitlin and Barbara Grubbs who will serve as assistant director.
Performances are September 18-27 at the Main St Theatre. Evening performances are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on Sept. 21.
Make your reservations today to see the show that Backstage Magazine calls “A hilarious family comedy,” and Star-Ledger describes as “Loaded with laughs every step of the way.”
