This classic American comedy/drama is every bit as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1979. When Ethel and Norman Thayer return to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year, they are visited by their divorced daughter and her fiancé who then go off to Europe leaving his teenage son behind for the summer.
Norman is a near-80, retired professor with heart palpitations and failing memory, who retains his tart-tongued, observant eagerness for life. Ethel is ten years younger and the perfect foil for Norman, delighting in all the small things that have enriched their long life together. The teenage boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple has longed for. As Norman revels in taking his ward fishing, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness in return. When the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll. In the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Though time is now against them, they realize their years together have been rich and full. Perhaps yet another summer on Golden Pond waits. The 1981 movie featuring Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn received three Academy Awards. Our production will feature a SPECIAL CELEBRITY GUEST STAR to be announced soon! Plated lunch included before the matinee begins.

Be one of the first to see the beautiful new MGM Casino located near the Potomac River in the National Harbor across from Alexandria, VA. While most casinos outside Las Vegas tout a “Vegas-style” experience, the MGM National Harbor comes closer than most to delivering. With bright, shimmering crystals hanging from the ceiling and natural light sneaking in through floor-to-ceiling windows in the sports bar, the casino has an elegant feel.
At 125,000 square feet, it’s a roomy expanse for a resort whose hotel has only 300 rooms. (The MGM Grand in Las Vegas has a 175,000-square-foot floor for a hotel with more than 5,000 rooms.) The floor is dominated by more than 3,300 eye-catching slot machines. According to a casino spokesman, the companies who make them viewed the MGM opening as an opportunity to showcase their newest and most favored equipment. There are many upscale restaurants, sports bars, and casual dining in their “National Market.” There’s fun and excitement everywhere and almost 6 hours to enjoy it all! Exact amount of free slot play TBA. With your reservation, please provide your name as it appears on your photo ID (be sure to bring this), date of birth, and address.
