AUDITIONS for Over the River and Through the Woods

Directed by Kevin Poole

Call backs are Wed. Sept. 1 at 7-10pm

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 set of grandparents every Sunday for dinner. 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 but 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, wonders 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.

Auditioners will be asked to come prepared to read cold from the script. Each auditioner should plan to spend about five to ten minutes auditioning for the Director.  If necessary, a call back audition will be held on Wed. September 1st at 7pm. Those auditioners who the Director wishes to see further will be invited to the call back audition which may last up to three hours time.
