The Plaza Playhouse Theater in Carpinteria presents “Over the River and Through the Woods”

July 17, 2015 from 8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, 3:00 pm on Sunday

Grandparents in one’s life can be truly wonderful with love and support, until you announce a change in your life that will affect their life in a way they are not happy with.  Nick is a single, Italian/American 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 he has been offered a dream job which would take him away from his beloved, but annoying grandparents.  The news doesn’t sit so well.  They begin 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?  Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that included inviting the lovely and single Caitlin O’Hare, to dinner as bait……

Join us for this delightful romp through family dynamics!  “Over the River and Through the Woods” is directed by Jordana Lawrence who recently directed the successful production of “Laundry and Bourbon” and “The Old Radio Shows”.
