The Vagabond Players are taking on the foibles of an Italian-American family in their next outing at Bernie Legge Theatre.
The company is presenting Joe DiPietro’s comedy Over the River and Through the Woods from Feb. 4 to 27.
The comedy tells the story of Nick, a single Italian-American guy from New Jersey who is offered a dream job in Seattle and tells his grandparents of his intention to move. But, for a family who has already lost Nick’s sister and parents to distant cities, the move is unthinkable – and so begins a plot designed to keep him around.
“Both sets of grandparents do their level best to make Nick stay, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely – and single – Caitlin O’Hare as bait,” a press release reads. “The resulting situation is deliciously entertaining and filled with fun.”
William Valenzuela stars as Nick, with Kimmie Kidd as Caitlin. The cast is rounded out by Mary Adams, Andrew Wood, Robert Bowes and Diana Sandberg as the quartet of grandparents.
Shows run at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday, with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $13 for seniors and youth, with $10 previews on Feb. 4 and 5.
