"On Golden Pond" at the EPAC

On Golden Pond Ad The Montanna Repertory Theater will perform "On Golden Pond" by Ernest Thompson at the EPAC on Saturday, February 24th at 7:00 p.m. They are on tour across the nation and The Ellis Performing Arts Center is proud to be one of their selected venues. This performance should not be missed!

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR'S NOTE | GREG JOHNSON

On Golden Pond is an American treasure. Many of us are familiar with the story through the Academy Award-winning film with Henry and Jane Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Others have attended one of the literally thousands of productions this extraordinary play has received over the years. Something deep and profound resonates through the events that unfold in this American masterpiece brilliantly penned by Ernest Thompson.

Beguilingly simple, this tale of a single family and how they pull apart and then find each other has been touching audiences for decades and generations. We at Montana Rep feel it is time to reintroduce this quintessentially American play to our audiences.

This play has endured because it deals with a family in crisis in a humane, poetic, and often very funny way. It continues to resonate because we all have mothers and fathers, we all cope with aging, and we have all experienced being lost -- and hopefully found. It is this dynamic, this finding of family and the love therein, that keeps On Golden Pond forever relevant.

PLAYWRIGHT'S NOTE | ERNEST THOMPSON

(What) A Life On Golden Pond

Occasionally someone will ask, did I know when I wrote this play that I'd be creating a classic that would still resonate for audiences decades later? Of course, I always say. There was a heavenly light over my desk and I could hear distant laughter and rousing applause. In fact, I knew nothing, an excellent state for any writer trying to conjure the simplest of stories, honest and uncomplicated.

If you've never spent time on Golden Pond before, welcome. If you're back for another visit, I know the feeling; I never seem to stray too far, prepping a sequel to the movie and another Broadway revival.

On Golden Pond has been seen all over the world, in 30 languages, but I'm happy that this production is playing in your town. And I hope you enjoy your time on the lake.
