Highlands presents senior comedy

art comedyThe production of “Over the River and Through the Woods” will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 22-24 and at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 18 and 25 at the Highlands Performing Arts Center.

This is a show of “faith, food and family.” Two pairs of grandparents try to keep their grandson, who dearly loves his doting immigrant grandparents but wants to pursue his career, from taking a promotion on the other side of the country. 

In order to keep him near them, they introduce him to Caitlin O’Hare, the unmarried niece of his grandmother Emma’s canasta partner. As Nick, the beloved grandson says, “When your grandmother sets you up, you have every right to be disappointed.” Unfortunately he isn’t — which just adds to his stress and the fun of the play.

The playwright, Joe DiPietro also wrote the musical comedy hit “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” the longest-running musical revue in Off-Broadway history, and the 2010 Tony award-winning musical Memphis. His most recent musical “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” which is a re-imagining of a Gershwin musical, was nominated for Tony awards in 2012.
