Miracle Theatre presents On Golden Pond in February

On Golden Pond is the latest show presented by Miracle Theatre for their sixth fundraising production.

On Golden Pond will be the latest show presented by Miracle Theatre for their sixth fundraising production set for February 2022.

Prince George professional theatre enthusiasts will be happy to hear that familiar actors Billy Vickers and Linda Goranson will take the leads, Norman and Ethel Thayer, in the well-known play by Ernest Thompson.

Funds raised will go to The Prince George Hospice Palliative Care Society through a sustainable endowment fund managed by the Prince George Community Foundation.

The hope is to raise at least equal to Miracle Theatre's last production’s efforts that was more than $106,000 which went to the Children of Prince George Fund.

“What’s remarkable about our community is how we do come together,” Donna Flood of the Hospice Society said. “We are very grateful to be working with Ted and Anne (of Miracle Theatre) and the Community Foundation.”

There are a couple of COVID-inspired variables and those include the dates and the venue of the production that sees more than 50 volunteers come together to help with the effort.

“We’re seeing the date to start the performances as a target - we are targeting Feb. 16 for the first public performance,” Ted Price Miracle Theatre’s director/ designer said.

“But that target could move,” Anne Laughlin MiracleTheatre’s producer said.

“And we’re targeting March 13 as the final performance,” Price bantered back.

“But that target could move,” Laughlin deadpans in response.

Because it’s too early to tell what type of pandemic protocols will be in place in February, Price said the venue shall remain a mystery for the time being.

Of course, the preference is ArtSpace, the location of previous shows, as owner of the building Owen Lubbers offers the space to Miracle Theatre for free that maximizes fundraising efforts.

Social distancing and audience restrictions might not make ArtSpace a viable venue for the upcoming production and a final location will be announced closer to the date of performances.

Wherever it ends up, the theatre will be dark Mondays, with two shows presented on Sunday, including an afternoon matinee, with the regular performances in the evening all other days.

Tickets are $35, with gift tickets available for Christmas giving. For more information about those tickets contact anne.laughlin.pg@shaw.pg. Tickets will go on sale Jan. 3 at Books & Co.
