A Charming Reflection on Family... Over the River and Through the Woods at Horizon Stage...

Saturday night I made the drive to Spruce Grove to have dinner with AM and catch the latest Horizon Players production, Over the River and Through the Woods.  It was closing night, so you won't be able to catch it, but I did enjoy myself. It was a lovely, charming piece about a grandson dealing with two sets of involved Italian grandparents. It's themes were also about changing times and traditions, how people show love, and having to deal with decisions that might take us away from those who love us. it had many funny moments that I think most people could relate to, even if you weren't Italian.  Like the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding or the TV show Little Mosque on the Prairie, it connects us to the universality of the modern world shifting our cultural traditions. The four grandparents were particularly entertaining, and played well. It left us with a little sadness and contemplation about what happens when those older generations pass on. A truly charming evening of theatre.
