Readers’ Theater: On Golden Pond

Readers Theater On Golden Pond

The Glen Arbor Arts Center Readers’ Theater presents On Golden Pond, October 20-21, 7:30 p.m. at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church.

Ernest Thompson’s 1979 play focuses on aging couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. During the year the story takes place, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé Billy Ray and his son Billy Ray Jr. The play explores the often turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage.

On Golden Pond is directed by Ron Smith, and is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. Reservations for either performance are suggested, and may be made by emailing: gaaareaderstheater@gmail.com. The production is free. For more information call 231-334-6112.

Assistant Director: Janet Stipicevich. Cast: Norman Thayer, Jr, Tom Patton, Ethyl Thayer, Kathryn DenHouten, Chelsea Thayer Wayne, Jean Jenkins, Bill Ray, Sr., Pete LaPlaca, Billy Ray, Jr., Cody Deisler, Charlie Martin, Colin Bohash. Narrator: Janet Stipicevich. Crew: Bill Dickinson, Fred Ford, Teddy House, Karen Ford.

Important Note from Ron Smith about road work and access to the venue:

“Here is a map to assist people in getting to Cty 616-Cty 675 from either M-72 or M-22.  Note that I suggest using Cty 669 as  the easiest way to direct people to the church. There will be no access on Cty 616-Cty 675 coming from the west to the church.  This will affect people going to the school, La Becasse and Funistrada, as well, so they might appreciate the heads up for that reason, too”.
