By Ernest Thompson

Directed by David and Patricia Parry

Auditions will be held in The Studio Theatre on Thursday April 26th at 7:00 pm and Sunday April 29th at 2:00 pm

Production dates: June 28th – 30th and July 5th – 8th.

Synopsis: Retired University professor Norman Thayer and his wife, Ethel, spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter visits, bringing along the new man in her life and his 13-year-old son. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties facing a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine in a play that gives us unique insight into the modern American family.

A wonderfully touching and occasionally very funny play.

Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm commencing with a full read-through of the script on Sunday May 6th at 2:00 pm in the Green Room at Studio Theatre.
