Ethel and Norman Thayer are spending their summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond and this year, for the first time in many, their daughter Chelsea (with new fiancé and his son in tow) visits them. Generations humorously and poignantly clash, as the play explores the often turbulent relationships of growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight of a long marriage.
Jackie Prucha (Ethel) and Theo Harness (Norman) lead this talented cast: Jim Dailey (Charlie), Dori Garziano (Chelsea), Matt Lewis (Bill Ray) and Sam Costantino (Billy).
The production is directed by Kelly Criss and the production/design team includes Jane Kroessig (Costume Design), Kathy Manning (Props Design), Jason Pohlemus (Sound Design), John David Williams (Lighting Design), Chuck Welcome (Scenic Design), and Hampton Whatley (Production Manager). The show is stage managed by Ellen Gaydos.
Tickets start at $27 and are available online at www.stagedoorplayers.net or by calling the box office at (770) 396-1726. Senior, student and youth discounts are available.
