Center Stage Theatre director Gary Scarpa has announced the theatre will hold auditions for the comedy, \u201cOver the River and through the Woods,\u201d on Saturday, Feb. 20 between 10 a.m. and noon. Scarpa said, "We are seeking experienced or inexperienced actors to fill the roles. There are roles for adults, teens, and children." Over the River and through the Woods\u00a0is a play about a young man\u2019s relationship with his Italian grandparents. The central character, Nick, is an upwardly mobile 20-something year old who has been offered a promotion, which would mean leaving his native New Jersey and moving to Seattle. Nick\u2019s four Italian grandparents scheme together to keep him in New Jersey. \u201cThe play is both funny and touching at the same time,\u201d said Scarpa. \u201cAny of us who have or had a close relationship with our grandparents will be able to relate.\u201d Center Stage Theatre is a non-profit organization, founded in 2005 by directors Gary and Francesca Scarpa.
