ON GOLDEN POND

By Ernest Thompson | Directed by Forrest Hodge

Production Dates: April 28 - May 1, 2016

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

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. 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 have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together.

They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return.

On Golden Pond is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

84, CHARING CROSS ROAD

By Helene Hanff | Directed by Alicia Dallas

Auditions: May 2nd and 3rd at 6PM

Production Dates: June 23-26, 2016

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff (played on Broadway by Ellen Burstyn) first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helene.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
