Over The River And Through The Woods Opens Friday

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Ever After Productions will open their next production, Over the River and Through the Woods, directed by Jan Daigle, on Friday.  

Over the River and Through the Woods is a comedic look at an Italian-American family in suburban New Jersey. The story centers around Nick and his two sets of grandparents. Nick joins the grandparents for Sunday dinner every week. This ritual is threatened when he is offered his dream job in Seattle and breaks the news to his grandparents. Then the scheming begins. The grandparents accuse him of betraying his family and begin plotting to make him change his mind. The plan involves inviting a lovely, single young lady to join them for Sunday dinner, in hopes that the two will fall in love and Nick will stay in New Jersey. 

Performances will be held Sept. 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee at 1 p.m. on Sept. 21, at the Colonnade Theater in Ringgold. Ticket prices are $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and students and $8 per person in groups of 15 or more. Purchase tickets by calling the Box Office at 706.935-900 or online at ColonnadeCenter.org.
