Over the River and Through the Woods

January 28, 2023

1 - 4 p.m.

Limelight Theatre is holding auditions for the upcoming production of Over the River and Through the Woods, by Joe DiPietro, on Saturday, January 28 from 1-4 p.m.


Nick, a single, Italian-American marketing executive from New Jersey, routinely visits his four grandparents every Sunday for family dinner since his parents retired and moved to Florida. As their only close relative, Nick’s grandparents inundate him with family tradition and lots of food. When Nick announces he is being promoted and moving to Seattle, his grandparents are devastated and quickly concoct a series of hilarious schemes to keep Nick from leaving, including introducing him to the woman of his dreams.

Directed by Hazel Robinson, Over the River and Through the Woods is part of Limelight Theatre's 31st Season and will be onstage April 7 - 30, 2023.
