“On Golden Pond,” by Ernest Thompson, takes place in Norman and Ethel Thayer’s summer home on Golden Pond in Maine. As they open the house for the season, Norman and Ethel will soon be joined by their adult daughter, Chelsea, her boyfriend, Bill Ray, and his surly teenaged son, Billy. “On Golden Pond” is a sometimes difficult, sometimes funny, story of one family’s dysfunction as each member of this multi-generational clan struggles to find their way through age, rage, regret, love withheld, love unspoken, disappointment and, hopefully, forgiveness and acceptance. All roles are available.
Thayer, Jr. – Male, Late 70’s/Early 80’s. Retired college professor. Cantankerous with an acerbic sense of humor.
Thayer – Female, Mid- 70’s/Early 80’s. Intelligent, upbeat and energetic. Wife to Norman. She understands him best.
Thayer Wayne – Female, 40’s/50’s – Norman and Ethel’s daughter. A capable woman except when it comes to her relationship with Norman.
Ray – Male, 40’s/50’s – Chelsea’s boyfriend. A successful dentist and decent guy.
Billy Ray – Male, early-mid teens – Bill’s surly son. Always testing boundaries. A good kid mired in teenage angst.
