Magenta Theater’s Black Chair Project presents “Over the River and Through the Woods” July 13

Monday, July 10, 2017

Magenta’s “Black Chair Project” productions have become audience favorites. Each one is only for one performance, and tickets sell out fast. The next edition is this Thursday, July 13. Over the River and Through the Woods is written by Joe DiPietro and directed by Jaynie Roberts.

Nick is a single Italian-American guy from new Jersey. He sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he has to relocate for a new job. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best to keep him home, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely, and single, Caitlin O’Hare as bait.

Doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door if available. Magenta Theater is located at 1108 Main St. To learn more and purchase tickets, visit www.magentatheater.com.
