Over the River and Through the Woods Presented by Visalia Players

by Irene Morse

Over the River and Through the Woods. Is there anyone who cannot finish the next line in that lyric? Right, To Grandmother’s House We Go. If, instead of one grandmother, you have two, and two grandfathers as well, and they are all Italian, and you are expected for dinner every single Sunday, you know what the play, often shortened to OTR, by Joe DiPietro is all about. This is the third production in the current season presented by The Visalia Community Players at the Ice House Theatre.
