MainStage Irving-Las Colinas has announced the cast, creative team, and performance dates for their upcoming production of On Golden Pond. This classic piece of American theater remains an inspiring celebration of the universal challenges we all face, and the ultimate triumphs of life, love, and family. On Golden Pond opened on Broadway in 1979 but is probably best known for its Oscar winning screen adaptation starring Henry Fonda, Katherine Hepburn, and Jane Fonda.

Directed by Michael Serrecchia, Ernest Thompson’s heartwarming play runs May 3- 18, 2024 in the Dupree Theater at the Irving Arts Center (3333 N. MacArthur Blvd, Irving). Single tickets range from $24 to $31 and are available for purchase through the Irving Arts Center Box Office.

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. Laugh and cry with Norman and Ethel Thayer on their journey through the timeless bonds of love and family.
