Over the River & Through the Woods

Nicky Cristano is a lucky young man.  He has four loving grandparents.  And he’s just been offered the job of his dreams. 

But the new job means he’ll have to move . . . far away.  What are Frank, Nunzio, Aida, and Emma to do? 

We won’t give that away, but we can say that you’ll laugh til you cry in this heartwarming, hilarious story about family ~ of holding together and letting go.

ACT ONE first presented playwright Joe DiPietro’s brilliant and wise script in Festival 2008. We are thrilled to share it with our theatre patrons again because it may well be one of the best plays you’ve seen in years. 

Over the River & Through the Woods is not only a treat for audiences but for actors as well.  Alan Huisman, Carol Davenport, Anne Rehner, and Danny Gerstein are thrilled to be reprising their roles as the grandparents.  Talented young actors Kyle Milner and Jami Harmon will try to rein in the chaos as Nicky and Caitlyn!

“A special gem of a show…wonderful, funny and poignant!”
