On Golden Pond Character Descriptions

Time, 1977; place Golden Pond, Maine
Norman Thayer, Jr.  (M) 79, playable ages 70-80
A peppery, tart-tongued, cantankerous old coot who is definitely not politically correct.  Still vigorous with a sly sense of humor, but this covers up his worries about getting old.
Ethel Thayer (F) 69, playable ages 60-75
Norman’s wife; loving with a sunny disposition, is used to playing referee between her husband and daughter because she loves them both dearly.  Worries about Norman’s fixation on death.
Charlie Martin (M) 44, playable ages 40-50
Easy-going & laughs a lot, plays at the country bumpkin but notices things a lot more than you’d think.  Ability to do Maine accent a plus. Chelsea’s former summer boyfriend.
Chelsea Thayer Wayne (F) 42, playable ages 35-45
Norman and Ethel’s daughter. Takes after her father with her tart tongue and sense of humor, but is more high-strung. Wants to patch things up with him but doesn’t quite know how.
Billy Ray (M) 13 but could cast older, playable ages 13-17
Bill Ray’s son. Smart-mouthed teen who finds a surprising ally in Norman.
Bill Ray (M) playable ages 40-50
Chelsea’s fiancé. Rather serious but not without a sense of humor, which tends to be on the dry side.  Has a hard time relating to his son & can’t quite figure Norman out.

General info about OLT auditions

Our audition procedures are generally as follows, but may vary at the discretion of the Director:
Auditions are typically held on a Monday and a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions, but you are welcome to read both nights of auditions if you'd like. If callbacks are necessary, the director will schedule the date and time.

Audition appointments are not necessary unless you are unable to attend auditions on the regularly scheduled days and times. In that case, the Director may agree to schedule a separate audition appointment for you. This choice is entirely up to the Director.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You do not need to have prepared monologues. Copies of the scripts for the current season's plays are available at the Downtown, Lacey, and Tumwater branches of the Timberland Library. You may ask for a copy of the script at the information desk. Scripts are only available for use at the library and may not be checked out.

Headshots and resumes are welcome at auditions, but are not necessary.

Rehearsals are typically Monday through Thursday. Additional rehearsals and/or the rehearsal schedule are at the Director's discretion. Performances are typically Thursday through Sunday; Sunday is the only matinee.

Olympia Little Theatre is a community theater and you need not have any previous experience, just passion and commitment!
