Event Description:
Get your wooden spoon ready for this Italian family comedy! State Street Theater presents “Over the River and Through the Woods” a family-centric comedy that leaves one feeling better about life. Performances will take place on Friday, October 8 at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 9 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, October 10 at 2 p.m. at State Street Theater Co., 1 North State Street, New Ulm, MN.
 
Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he tells them that he’s been offered a dream job. The job he’s been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. 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 do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O’Hare as bait…we won’t give the ending away here.
