Community Theater featuring On Golden Pond
Sept 19-21 at 7:30 pm

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. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her fiancé, who then go off, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and Norman also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. As the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
