On Golden Pond

The J.H. Rose High School Rampant Theatrical Company will present "On Golden Pond," a two-act play by Ernest Thompson, in the school's studio theater, off Arlington Boulevard. Performances will be at 7 p.m. today and Jan. 11 and 12, and at 2 p.m. Saturday and Jan. 13. Staged on Broadway in 1979, "On Golden Pond" was made into a motion picture starring Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn, and Jane Fonda in 1981. The story takes place during Norman and Ethel Thayer's annual summer stay at their Maine cottage. Although the summer is marked by the usual fishing and by visits from family, friends and neighbors, the cranky and somewhat hypochondriacal octogenarian Norman is convinced that this will be his last summer on Golden Pond. The play is directed by Rose drama teacher Monica Edwards. Seating will be limited. Tickets are $5. Call 321-6277.
