The Broadway Theatre of Pitman Presents "Over The River and Through The Woods"

The Broadway Theatre of Pitman will present "Over The River and Through The Woods" September 9 through October 2, 2011.  Written by Joe DiPietro, recipient of the William Inge Theatre Festival New Voices in American Theatre Award and O'Neill National Playwright's Conference MacArthur Award for comic writing, performances will take place Friday & Saturday at 8:00pm and Sunday at 2:00pm with an added show on Sunday Sept. 25th at 7:00pm.

Nick is a single Italian-American from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida, but that doesn't mean his family still isn't in New Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is Nick's comfortable, daily routine until he lands the dream job he's always wanted, which would take him away from his beloved grandparents. His grandparents find out, and thus begin a series of schemes, including introducing him to the lovely Caitlin, to keep Nick around. This hilarious comedy will have you laughing the whole night.

The Broadway Theatre of Pitman is dedicated to breathing life into exciting theater productions written for a diverse audience. Through various outreach and educational programs, The Broadway Theatre of Pitman will be a performing arts beacon in S Jersey.
