On Golden Pond

at The Onion Grille, Hastings, MN

This is our annual Dinner Theater play. This is put on by a smaller cast at a local restaurant called The Onion Grille. Join us for this story of a family piecing it back together. Cantankerous retiree Norman Thayer and his conciliatory wife, Ethel, spend summers at their New England vacation home on the shores of idyllic Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter, Chelsea, visits with her new fiancé and his teenage son, Billy on their way to Europe. After leaving Billy behind to bond with Norman, Chelsea returns, attempting to repair the long-strained relationship with her aging father before it's too late.

Mary Poppins

Hastings High School Performing Arts Center, 200 General Sieben Dr., Hastings

This is our annual summer musical that has a cast of all ages. Our musical typically has a large cast and is a great family show. Mary Poppins is a story about when Jane and Michael, the children of the wealthy and uptight Banks family, are faced with the prospect of a new nanny. They are pleasantly surprised by the arrival of the magical Mary Poppins. Embarking on a series of fantastical adventures with Mary and her Cockney performer friend, Bert, the siblings try to pass on some of their nanny's sunny attitude to their preoccupied parents.
