"On Golden Pond" is the love story of an aging couple, Norman and Ethel Thayer, who spend each summer at their house on a lake called Golden Pond.  The inevitable difficulties they face in the twilight years of a long marriage provide both humorous and tender moments.  This summer, they are visited by their daughter Chelsea, her fiancé and his son.  The play explores the often turbulent relationship Chelsea shared with her father growing up, and Norman comes to appreciate a new relationship he thought he would never have.


The cast for "On Golden Pond" features Dennis Purdie reviving the role of Norman Thayer.  Other cast members include, Kathryn Laycock Little as Ethel Thayer, Joey Balmforth as Charlie Martin, Kristen Metzer as Chelsea, Mathieu Kohl as Bill Ray and Luke Elison as Billy Ray.
