Alexandria, May 7, 2008—Director Frith Harwood announced the cast for City Park Players’ production of Ernest Thompson’s On Golden Pond. The production is the third offering of the theatre’s 2008 60th Anniversary Season and opens June 12.
On Golden Pond is the warmhearted story of grumpy, retired New England professor Norman Thayer, Jr., and his spirited wife, Ethel, spending one final summer at their lakeside cottage in Maine. Generations collide and sparks fly when the Thayer’s middle-age daughter and her fiancé leave his teenage son with the Thayers, while they embark on a European vacation. Kathryn Hepburn, Henry Fonda, and Jane Fonda starred in the beloved 1981 film based on this triumph of life, love, and family.
On Golden Pond plays June 12–22, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m., at the Bringhurst Park Theatre, 1802 Sylvester Street, Alexandria, Louisiana.
