ACT Presents ON GOLDEN POND, 9/28 - 10/28

ON GOLDEN POND, by Ernest Thompson, directed by Krista Schwarting, and produced by special arrangement wtih Dramatists Play Service, Inc. will kick off the 2012-2013 season beginning September 28 - October 28, 2012.  Performances are Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.

An award winning play that is as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1979. A retired couple, Ethel and Norman Thayer, spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter visits, bringing along her 13-year-old son. 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, all combine to give this play a wonderful perspective on family and on life.

The cast includes Norman: Jerry McDonnell, Ethel: Linda Benson, Chelsea: Veronica Page, Charlie: Scott Kober, Bill: Tom Atkinson, and Billy: Ian Soellers.
