Whitefish Theatre's warm-hearted comedy entertains all ages

| October 24, 2019 4:58 PM

This is the closing weekend for Whitefish Theatre Co.’s hilarious family comedy “Over the River and Through the Woods.” Performances are at 7:30 p.m. today through Saturday, Oct. 24, Oct. 25 and 26, at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

Meet Nick, a young single man who still lives near his two sets of Italian-American grandparents in suburban New Jersey. He sees them every Sunday for dinner, a night governed by the three “Fs” — family, faith and food. When Nick tells his family he’s moving to Seattle for his dream job, the wily elders launch a barrage of emotional blackmail to keep him around, including a matchmaking scheme with the lovely Caitlin. Will true love keep Nick from moving across the country? Find out in this warm-hearted, boisterously funny and touching story about familial love and the inevitable heartbreaks that occur as time passes and children grow.

“Over the River and Through the Woods” was written by award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro (“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” “Memphis”).

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $10 for students with reserved seating.
