On Golden Pond opens Friday in Cairo

THOMASVILLE — The Syrup City Players will open their 2014 Season with Ernest Thompson’s “On Golden Pond,” directed by Jeff Lovett, on Friday at the Zebulon Theater in downtown Cairo.

“On Golden Pond” is one of the funniest and most heart-warming plays to ever take the stage. In 1981, the play was made into a popular movie that won Academy Awards for Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn.

“On Golden Pond” begins with the arrival of an old, long-married couple to their lakeside cottage, where they have summered for 44 years. They are estranged from their only daughter, Chelsea, who comes to the cottage to celebrate her father’s 80th birthday.

Chelsea announces that she and her new boyfriend are taking a trip to Europe and ask the old couple to watch the man’s teenage son while they are gone. Ethel and Norman agree, and the experience teaches the old man how to trust and communicate with his daughter.

“On Golden Pond” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Advance tickets — $12 for adults and $8 for seniors/students — are on sale at Miss Myrt’s and Center Drugs in Cairo. All tickets are $12 at the door.

For more information, contact Jeff Lovett at 221-1030.
