Many of you will be most familiar with the triple academy award winning film version of On Golden Pond released in 1981and starring Henry Fonda, Katherine Hepburn and Jane Fonda. The original much-lauded play had its Broadway debut in 1979 at the New Apollo Theatre and was revised in 2005 with an African American cast.
We are also ‘over the moon’ to welcome Sharlene MacLean back to the Island to play Ethel Thayer in the production. Sharlene now lives in London, England and Ireland. She performed in the inaugural Victoria Playhouse season in 1982, playing opposite Bill McFadden in The Owl and the Pussycat and Dear Liar. Sharlene is a mesmerizing actor whom Islanders will remember for her stellar performances in The Gin Game, The Lion in Winter, The Glass Menagerie, The Miracle Worker, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man in the Moon Marigolds and yes, Anne of Green Gables, as well.
