SCC Center Stage Theatre to hold open auditions for ‘On Golden Pond’ Oct. 7-8

September 16, 2013

St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre is holding open auditions for the upcoming production of “On Golden Pond,” by Ernest Thompson.

SCC Center Stage Theatre to hold open auditions for  ‘On Golden Pond’ Oct. 7-8

Director Lynne Snyder will hold open auditions at 7 p.m. Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 7-8, in the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building, Room 110, on the SCC campus in Cottleville. Center Stage Theatre invites SCC students and community residents to audition.

Callbacks will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9.

There are parts for two women, three men and one boy. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, which is on reserve in the SCC library. Monologues are encouraged, but not required. 

This play is a classic American comedy and drama that concerns retired Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond, Maine. This year, their adult daughter and her fiancé visit, bringing 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.

The performances will be held in the theater of the Fine Arts Building Wednesday-Sunday, Nov. 20-24. There will be a high school matinee at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21.
