Join Us for an Original Play at the Broken Arrow Playhouse: “Over the River and Through the Woods”
Broken Arrow Community Playhouse Presents “Over the River and Through the Woods,” a comedy by Joe DiPietro. Run dates include August 5-7, 12-14, 2016. Fridays and Saturday performances are at 7:30 PM, and Sunday performances at 2 PM. This will be a major fund raiser for the playhouse, and all tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.
The love of family is the theme that runs throughout this warm-hearted comedy. 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. These dinners are governed by the three “F’s” – Family, Faith and Food.
This is routine until he has to tell 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.
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? Well, 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.
Todd Campbell directs this star studded (to us anyway) cast. You last saw Todd on the BACP stage last summer in the hilarious “A Tuna Christmas.” We hope you can join us in August, this cast is certain to make you laugh, make you cry and head home to hug your family.
We know you love your home at Clairemont Park Apartments in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
