Limelight Theatre presents ‘Over the River and Through the Woods’

Francis Howell High School’s award-winning Limelight Theatre presents its spring production, “Over the River and Through the Woods” April 16-18 in the school auditorium, located at 7001 Hwy. 94.

In the story, Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents have retired and moved to Florida, but that doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner.

His life is routine until he has to tell his family that he has been offered a dream job as a marketing executive. It’s a job that will take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. When 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 – Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma. Unable to answer their question, they do their level best – including bringing the lovely and single Caitlin O’Hare to dinner as bait – to keep Nick in Jersey.

Performances of “Over the River and Through the Woods” take place at 7 p.m. each night, April 16-18 (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) Tickets are $5 per person and are available at the door.
