As the 2014 "Season of Romance" continues for the theater club, this comedy is set around an Italian family in New Jersey. Nick's relationship with his grandparents is suddenly at risk when he is offered a dream job in Seattle. This triggers a series of schemes to keep Nick from moving away including setting him up on a blind date.

The next production will be A Tuna Christmas coming in December. The Main Street Theater has been providing entertainment for 35 years.
