On Golden Pond

Don’t miss your chance to see this American treasure, brilliantly penned by Ernest Thompson. The Academy Award-winning movie, starring Henry and Jane Fonda and Katharine Hepburn, was released in 1981 and is now on stage at our very own Montana Repertory Theatre. This tale is one of family and how they pull apart and then find each other again. A truly touching story that resonates with anyone in areas of family relationships and aging. Your last chances to enjoy this beloved story on stage are Thursday, February 1 and Saturday, February 3 at 7:30 p.m. Get your tickets at UMT.edu or call 406.243.4051.
