SCC’s Center Stage Theatre to present ‘On Golden Pond’ Nov. 20-24

“On Golden Pond” is a classic American comedy and drama that concerns retired Ethel and Normal Thayer, who spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond, Maine. This year, their adult daughter and her fiancé visit, brining along his 13-year old son. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old and the difficulties, joys and fears facing a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage all combine to give this play a unique insight into the modern family. In the end, they all learn from one another.
