Absolutely Brilliant!

The first night of On Golden Pond was a triumph with the audience receiving the latest CDS production of Ernest Thomson’s bitter-sweet drama with warm laughter and evident pleasure at the antics of curmudgeonly  Norman Thaler and his family.

As Rick Farmer’s Norman struggled with his screen door, ageing and the  younger generations of daughter Chelsea, new boyfriend Bill and putative step-grandson Billy, his long suffering wife Ethel (Chrys Tarr)  shared centre stage and some of the best lines in this witty story of love, loons and a summer by the eponymous lake.

If you’ve not already booked, there are still seats available for all performances until Saturday. If you have booked, then  be prepared to be entertained royally, and if you’ve not yet booked ask someone who was there last night as they will surely tell you they would go again!loons-image-boat

Tickets from the usual village outlets, online and on the door!

You may have seen the CDS banners (kindly sponsored by Marcus Grimes) are now up around the edge of the village to promote On Golden Pond.

Posters now need to be distributed around the village as well as Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and other nearby localities!

Flyers are also being distributed to the local shops and will be handed out the the Independent State‘s mayoral election count at  The Talbot and the New Mayor’s parade on the following day.
