SHELTON, Conn. — The 11th season of “Over the River and Through the Woods” at Center Stage Theatre in Shelton is underway.

The show runs through April 24 with performances at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays, with a 7 p.m. show on April 21.

The off-Broadway comic-drama is about a tight-knit, Italian-American family who shares Sunday dinners in New Jersey. When the grandson announces he’s leaving Hoboken and moving to Seattle to accept a promotion, he sends both sets of grandparents into a tailspin -- and they pull out all the stops to persuade him to stay.

This story of love and family is a reminder that the important life lessons come from the most important people in a person's life.

The production features Shelton High School and Western Connecticut State University graduate Kyle Attanasio, as well as two Shelton teachers -- Rosemary Pagliaro and Erica McNeil.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students.

Other performances and activities coming to Center Stage include:

  • “Festa Italiano” on May 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. and May 15 at 2 p.m. with Marc Garofalo. Admission is $15. Attendees can bring their own refreshments to the cabaret show.
  • A new event, Musical Theatre Workshop Jr., will feature talented children. Directed by Center Stage Education Coordinator Gina Scarpa, the production will take place on May 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. and June 22 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.
  • Center Stage is also taking registrations for spring classes, which will begin on April 18, and Summer Theatre Camp, which will begin on June 20.
  • On June 8 at 7 p.m., Center Stage will host “Family Bingo Night," which will feature characters from recent plays calling numbers and prizes to winners.

Center Stage is a nonprofit theatre located at 54 Grove Street in Shelton.
