On Golden Pond
by Ernest Thompson
Now in rehearsal, this funny play centers around Norman and Ethel Thayer, an aging couple, visiting their cabin in the Maine woods for the forty-eighth summer. Ethel is still full of energy and wonder at the beauty around her. Norman seems increasingly unable to remember things, and uses some snappy, and sometimes snappish humor, to cover for it. There is a long time rift between Norman and their only daughter, Chelsea, who is going to visit them, with her new fiance, Bill, to celebrate Norman’s 80th birthday. The first act ends with the surprising decision to leave Bill’s 13 year old son, Billy, with the Thayers while Bill and Chelsea vacation for the summer in Europe. Here begins some changes that will help the family to smooth some friction and have some hopes, and some doubts, about the future. Their story is told with many laughs, a gasp or two, and, possibly, the shedding of a tear.
This award winning play is written with warmth and humor that our six actors bring to the stage vividly. Norman and Ethel are played by theater veterans Alex Nawrocki and Kerry Rosewall, who is making her first Tater Patch appearance. Chelsea and Bill are portrayed with humor and fire by Chelsea Walker and Jason Boskey. Billy is played by Grayson Ludington, who won over audiences last winter as Ralphie Parker in A Christmas Story. Charlie the mailman is played with great humor and deep feeling by Tony Greiner. The play is directed by Nan Nawrocki.
