On Golden PondProgramme Cover

By Ernest Thompson

Directed by Alan Hargreaves


Act I

Act II

Setting - Norman & Ethel's Summer home on Golden Pond, Maine

After a lifetime of learning lines and delivering them, as though I understood them, of mastering the art of walking across a stage without bumping into tire furniture or my 'luvvie' chums, I find myself in charge of a full production! Never again will I be disparaging of Directors, Technical Staff, or Stage Managers.

On Golden Pond is a warm and charming story told by living actors, having the ability to make us laugh, reflect, and sometimes cry. This play has been staged, set and presented by comrades who really look out for each other.

A terrific team achievement by cast, technicians, backstage and front-of-house staff representing one of the most exciting and charismatic drama clubs in the North East of Lancashire.

In the unlikely event that your enjoyment of this play is marred in any way, just remember that the 'Buck Stops here!'
