"A hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long-running musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change.
From the author that brought us the hilarious musical, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, ALT is proud to present the heartwarming and very funny comedy, Over the River and Through the Woods as it's third Mainstage production of the 2018-19 season. ALT successfully produced this great show in 2004. It was an overwhelming audience favorite that we are to excited to produce again.
As the story goes, 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. The job he's been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare as bait…we won't give the ending away here.
ALT has assembled a wonderful cast for this production. It includes Michael Newman as Nick, with Jeffrey Pickens, Connie Cannady, Don Shipman and Kim Shreffler as the grandparents. Amy Shelburne is playing the role of Caitlin. Artistic Director for this production is Callie Hisek, Associate Director of Theatre at WTAMU.
Over the River and Through the Woods promises to be one of the most popular shows of the season. Audiences will love it! Make sure to reserve your tickets right away.
