On Golden Pond
April 24-26, May 1-3, 8-10. Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30pm, Sunday performance at 2:30pm
This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild”. Norman also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
