Opening: On Golden Pond
Vincent J. Cardinal, director

Redhouse at City Center Mainstage
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Redhouse Arts Center is thrilled to inaugurate its new City Center home with Ernest Thompson's classic On Golden Pond. Don't miss this gorgeously witty and heart warming classic featuring an all-star cast.

On Golden Pond charts the poignant love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year. He is a curmudgeonly retired professor nearing 80. Ethel, 10 years younger, delights in the small things that have enriched their long life together. Their respite is interrupted by the arrival of their estranged daughter, her fiancé, and his teenage son. When Norman develops an unlikely friendship with the boy, it reinvigorates the grumpy retired professor and highlights the rocky relationship between this father and his now middle-aged daughter. As the summer days grow short, there is still time for their family to heal, and to rediscover the joys in everyday life. On Golden Pond is a touching and funny observance of life, family and the "golden years."

Actor Fred Grandy, lovingly known as "Gopher" by fans who watched him on the long-running TV Series The Love Boat, stars as Norman Thayer alongside his real-life daughter, Broadway star Marya Grandy as Chelsea. This will mark the first time the Grandys portray father and daughter together on stage.

On-site parking is available in the attached garage on Clinton Street.
