Whitefish Theatre holds auditions for season opener

Print Article

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for the 2019-2020 season opening production of “Over the River and Through the Woods” at 7 p.m. Aug. 26 and 27 at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Arrive early to fill out an audition application and review the script. Enter at the north side of the building near the conference room.

“Over the River and Through the Woods” follows Nick, a young single man who has managed to be the only member of his family who still lives near his two sets of Italian-American grandparents in suburban New Jersey. He sees them every Sunday for dinner, a night that is governed by the three “Fs” — family, faith and food. However, when Nick tells his famiglia that he is moving to Seattle for his dream job, the wily elders decide to launch a barrage of emotional blackmail to keep Nick around, including a cooked-up matchmaking scheme with the lovely Caitlin. Will the prospect of true love keep Nick from moving across the country? Find out in this warm-hearted, boisterously funny and touching story about deep familial love and the inevitable little heartbreaks that occur as time passes and children grow.

The cast will be composed of three men and three women that will comprise one young couple and two elderly couples. All characters in this production will be asked to speak with an Italian-American New Jersey accent. Accent preparation is recommended with accent preparation CDs available to check out at the Whitefish Theater Company box office. Pages from the script will be provided at the audition.

David Ackroyd is the director for this production. Rehearsals begin in September and will be held Monday through Friday from 6 or 7 p.m. to 9 or 10 p.m. There are seven performances over two weekends, Oct. 17 to 20 and Oct. 24 to 26. For more information, call the Whitefish Theatre Company at 862-5371.
