Celebrate Spring "On Golden Pond"


Made famous on screen with Katherine Hepburn, Henry and Jane Fonda, the story focuses on aging couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. They are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé and his son in tow, whom they leave with Ethel and Norman as they travel to Europe. The play explores 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.
