Audition Scheduled for:
ON GOLDEN POND By Ernest Thompson Directed by Steve Shaw (private audition 608-931-5203) Casting: 3W, 2M, 1B Aug. 19 – 20 @ 7pm Show Dates: Oct. 25,26,27 & Nov. 1,2,3 2019 THE STORY: This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and 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. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.

How to Audition:
You do not need to prepare a reading to audition for a JLT play. When you audition you will be asked to read from the script and interact with other actors who are auditioning. You may be asked to read several parts. Please print and fill out a copy of the JLT Talent Information Form to bring with you to your audition. Copies will be also available at the audition. If you are chosen for a part and have not been in a JLT production in the previous year, you will also be asked to sign a photo release so we can use photos from the play for publicity.
Janesville Little Theatre is always looking for individuals who would like to become involved with the theatre but perhaps not as actors or actresses. There are many elements to theatre production from sound and lighting to props and set construction, costumes, make-up, advertising, and many other areas where JLT can use your talents. So if you would like to become involved with the theatre please e-mail us with your name, phone number and e-mail address and what you would like to volunteer for. Thank you in advance for your interest in Janesville Little Theatre.
