‘Golden Pond’ great

Carolyn Lancaster


I was privileged to attend opening night of “On Golden Pond” presented by Carson Valley Community Theatre. The audience alternately belly-laughed and wiped away tears as the terrific cast led us through the poignant story. I saw the movie and liked the stage production more than the movie.

The cast includes these veteran actors: Dave Anderson, president of Minden’s The Dakota Organization; Karen Chandler, Theatre Arts teacher at Carson HS for 23 years; Mike Trute, in his third appearance with CVCT; Catherine Cook, teacher at Whittell HS and WNC, and Jody Paslov in his first production with CVCT. David Sando on the speech and debate team at Carson Valley Middle School performs in his first real play, and is destined for many more.

Ann Delahay, with the assistance of Lucille Rao, has come up with the perfect cast and crew. I can only say, thank you so much for this production, and warn you that if you don’t see it this final weekend, you’ve missed a jewel.
