West Chicago, Illinois: May 16, 2013 - Back by popular demand, Gallery Theater has added additional dates for the performance of "Over the River and Through the Woods." Playing to sold-out audiences in May, and hearing from disappointed people who missed the original run, organizers have decided to bring it back for encore performances on two dates in June. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, 2013 and 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2013.

This endearing comedy is about Nick, a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey who shares Sunday dinner each week with both sets of grandparents. When Nick intends to move to Seattle for his dream job as a marketing executive, the news does not sit too well with his grandparents and they begin a series of schemes to keep Nick around. Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best and that includes a dinner invitation with the lovely - and single - Caitlin O'Hare as incentive!

Over the River and Through the Woods features Gail Cannata and Mark Fortman of West Chicago, Laura Dewitt, Lombard, Ginny Lennon and Carl Zeitler of Glen Ellyn and Howard Raik of Oak Park.

Gallery Theater productions are performed in the intimate space of Gallery 200/STUDIO, located at 203 Turner Court in West Chicago. Seating is limited, please call (630) 234-5919 or email to reserve tickets, which are priced at $9.00 each, $8.00 for seniors and students.
