April 28-30 (Repeats May 5-7, 12-14)….Lubbock
Community Theatre Presents: “Over the River & Through
the Woods“ - 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. Ran Off-Broadway for over 800 Performances.
Written by Walter Donaldson and Gus Kahn. Directed by Heather
