Open auditions will involve cold readings from the script. The ages are suggested, but not written in stone. Characters must appear to be suggested ages.It is recommended that the parents of young men auditioning for the role of Billy read the script prior to the audition. This character is required to use some adult language.
Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter visits, bringing along her 13-year-old son. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties facing a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine to give this play a unique insight into the modern family.
