On Golden Pond, starring Steve Shaffer, will kick off the Old Log Theater's 72nd anniversary season,
opening February 11, 2011 and continuing through the Spring. Originally presented to critical and popular
acclaim on Broadway, this funny, touching and warmly perceptive play centers around lovable curmudg-
eon, Norman Thayer, Jr., and his spirited wife, Ethel, who make their 48th annual trip to their summer
home on Golden Pond in Maine. They are soon visited by their middle-aged daughter and her dentist
Fiancé , who, en route to a European vacation, leave behind his teenage son for the summer. The boy
quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his
ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage aware-
ness - and slang - in return. On Golden Pond is a heart-warming and hilarious celebration of everyday
life, love and family.
