Over the River and Through the Woods
 

Come and enjoy wine and cheese at 6:30 pm and a special standup comedy routine by Chris Ley at Barker Playhouse before the performance of Over the River and Through the Woods. The show starts at 7:30 pm. 

THE STORY: Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey who sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. 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.

 

Thursday, May 16
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Come and enjoy wine and cheese at 6:30 pm at Barker Playhouse before the performance of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The show starts at 7:30 pm. 

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
