ON GOLDEN POND
Heartwarming and Humorous
90 minutes, plus intermission.
Emmy Award winner Michael Learned (The Waltons) and Walter Borden (Order of Canada) star as Ethel and Norman Thayer in this classic comedy/drama about love, reconnection and family. It is every bit as warm and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway and later became the hit film we all know and love.
Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer are spending their 48th summer at their vacation home on Golden Pond. Norman is still as tarttongued as ever and Ethel is his perfect foil, delighting in all the things that enrich their lives together. This particular year, their summer routine is interrupted when their adult daughter visits, bringing her uptight boyfriend and his rebellious teenage son. This powerful story with its compelling characters remains an inspiring celebration of the universal challenges we all face, and the ultimate triumphs of life, love, and family.
“…a work of rare simplicity and beauty…”
