Welcome to the cabin of Norman and Ethel Thayer. They have returned to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory- but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman , delights in all the small things that enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her fiance', who then go to Europe , leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for and shows Norman he still has a few things to learn. Join us on the Pond, to glimpse the sometimes choppy waters of facing one's own Autumn beside those we love and still struggle to understand. Contains some adult language and themes.
Rehearsals will begin Sat. March 12th, performances run May 6th-29th. For further info, or to arrange an alternate audition date, please contact the director at dartistic@....
