Live Theater Night - Over the River and Through the Woods - $17.00

LIVE THEATER NIGHT

And now for something completely different. No, not Monty Python's Flying Circus. On Wednesday, June 5th, we've reserved a block of 20 tickets for the play, Over the River and Through the Woods being presented by The Eastside Players. This is the stage where I (Alex) did a lot of my acting in the late 70's and early 80's. :) Tickets are normally $22.00, but we were able to get a group discount of $17.00 per ticket.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
An Off-Broadway hit about four Italian American seniors who struggle to accept that their remaining grandson has his own dreams that apparently don’t include them. A touching and hilarious play that examines the nature of love, relationships, and the importance of family.

To purchase your tickets call Shirley, the Eastside Players Treasurer, at[masked] and she will be able to make payment arrangements with you. If she doesn't answer just leave a message and she will return your call. 

***IMPORTANT*** When you speak with Shirley, be sure to mention that you are with "Life Begins at 40" to get your discounted ticket. If you call the regular box office phone number you will not be able to get your discount. So it's best to call Shirley at[masked]!!

***PLEASE NOTE***

RSVP ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED YOUR TICKET THROUGH SHIRLEY. 1ST COME 1ST SERVED. [masked])

***IMPORTANT***

TICKETS, IN GENERAL COULD GO FAST!! IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO GO, BE SURE TO GET YOUR SEAT ASAP. ONCE THE SEATS ARE GONE, THEY'RE GONE. THE EASTSIDE PLAYERS WILL NOT HOLD OUR BLOCK OF 20 SEATS. AGAIN, THEY'RE DOING THIS ON A 1ST COME 1ST SERVED BASIS. SO BE SURE TO GET YOUR TICKETS QUICKLY!!

Once you've purchased your ticket please leave the comment "purchased ticket" below on this page.

We will begin gathering at 7:00 PM at the Box Office. If you don't know me yet (Alex) just check out my pictures on my profile page. Look for the stocky guy with the glow in the dark moustache. :) Since there is no set seating in the Papermill Theater, I will try my best to get there early to secure some seats in order to keep our group together. The play begins at 8:00 PM SHARP!!

The location of the theater is between Broadview & Mortimer and the Bayview Extension. There is free parking at the theater. Unfortunately there is no TTC service along Pottery Road, so folks without vehicles like myself will either have to walk downhill on Pottery Road or cab it from there. It's a very short cab ride!! If there's anyone willing to assist with drivng people to and from the theater from Broadview and Danforth, that would be a great help!! Again, please leave those comments below.

There is a $2 meetup fee for this event. Please pay (Alex) with exact change when you arrive.

Here's a link to the theater:   http://eastsideplayers.ca/

We'll see you at the theater!!

    I really enjoyed this play. It was laugh-out-loud funny in some places and then touching at the end. My first time at this venue (in fact, I didn't know the place existed - lol) and I'd definitely go back. Another great Meetup. Thanks Alex.

    A fantastic play. Very well done. Being back at my old stomping grounds brought back a lot of nice memories. The Eastside Players have gotten better with age. Thanks to everyone that attended.

    This is an absolutely WONDERFUL play. I saw it last night with another group. It's very funny and very touching. It was so good, it had people laughing and then, towards the end, wiping away tears because it was so moving. The acting is great. In particular, Jane Hunter steals the show with her hilarious, kooky portrayal of Emma. The price Alex has arranged for this show -- $17 -- is excellent. We had to pay the regular price of $22 to see it.
