Rehearsals are well underway for Rivercity Players’ latest comedy, Over The River and Through The Woods, set for May 1 – 10 at the Rivercity Stage.
Nick’s (Andy Peterson) grandparents will do their best to keep their grandson from taking a promotion on the other side of the country, including inviting a beautiful dinner guest to the family’s weekly Sunday dinner. Two of the grandparents are played by husband and wife actors, Barrie Darnell and Denise Comeau-Darnell, who met on the stage several decades ago. The other set of grandparents (played by Gail Tisdale as Emma, and Stu Morrison as Frank) host each week’s dinner, where the four old-timers love to talk, debating at which grocery store a certain pointless anecdote took place, or employing extremely circular deduction skills to remember who starred in High Noon. Tickets are $15 and available at Impressions, Comfort Zone Foods, or Campbell River Laundromat on the Tyee Plaza.
