‘On Golden Pond’ auditions set for Jan. 14, Jan. 16 at Hill Country Arts Foundation

The Hill Country Arts Foundation is looking for people interested in auditioning for the award-winning play.

If there’s a story that resonates with many of us, it’s the 1979 play ‘On Golden Pond,” later adapted into a movie that was the final performance of Henry Fonda — one that earned him an Oscar for Best Actor. In our setting, the Point Theatre and Hill Country Arts Foundation are staging the drama in late March and early April.

Directed by David L. Howard, the performance will be staged in the indoor theater, and they’re looking for people to audition for the pivotal roles. In a note from the production: “On Golden Pond” is a well-loved classic and you are going to want to be a part of it!  We welcome all levels of experience and we would love to see you at auditions.  Click on the button below for some audition FAQ’s.  Scroll further down the page on that link and you will find information on this show.  When you arrive for auditions, follow the signage as audition location is TBD (it will be here on the property, it just may not be in the theatre).  See you soon!!”

The parts up for audition are:

Norman Thayer, Jr.: Nearing his eightieth birthday, Norman is flirting with senility and is aware of it enough to use it to his advantage, usually in a humorous way. He is a curmudgeon, as he feels his age entitles him to be. He is very much in love with Ethel, his wife, but doesn’t quite know what to do about their daughter, Chelsea.

Ethel Thayer: Ten years younger than Norman, Ethel is a spritely, active woman who loves her husband completely and who is in love with simply being alive. She is caregiver, sweetheart, and friend to Norman.

Charlie Martin: The local delivery-by-boat mailman, Charlie is a long-time family friend and a typical Maine down-Easterner. Still single, he has had a life-long crush on Chelsea.

Chelsea Thayer Wayne: Attractive, divorced, and in her forties, Chelsea is still dealing with the lack of closeness between her and Norman. She is engaged to Bill Ray, whom she brings to meet her parents.

Billy Ray: The son of Bill Ray, he is a typical California boywho comes to spend a month with Norman and Ethel on Golden Pond while his father and Chelsea are in Europe.

Bill Ray: Chelsea’s fiancé and Billy’s father, Bill is definitely not the outdoors type. He is trying his best to make a good impression on Norman and Ethel.
