The characters in this popular, family story are as follows. You do not have to BE the age of a character; you just have to be able to ACT their age!
𝗡𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿, 𝗝𝗿.: Nearing his eightieth birthday, Norman is flirting with senility and is aware of it enough to use it to his advantage, usually in a humorous way. He is a curmudgeon, as he feels his age entitles him to be. He is very much in love with Ethel, his wife, but doesn’t quite know what to do about their daughter, Chelsea.
𝗘𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗹 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿: Ten years younger than Norman, Ethel is a spritely, active woman who loves her husband completely and who is in love with simply being alive. She is caregiver, sweetheart, and friend to Norman.
𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗹𝗶𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗻: The local delivery-by-boat mailman, Charlie is a long-time family friend and a typical Maine down-Easterner. Still single, he has had a life-long crush on Chelsea.
𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗹𝘀𝗲𝗮 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿 𝗪𝗮𝘆𝗻𝗲: Attractive, divorced, and in her forties, Chelsea is still dealing with the lack of closeness between her and Norman. She is engaged to Bill Ray, whom she brings to meet her parents.
𝗕𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗥𝗮𝘆: The fourteen-year-old son of Bill Ray, he is a typical California teenager who comes to spend a month with Norman and Ethel on Golden Pond while his father and Chelsea are in Europe.
𝗕𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗥𝗮𝘆: Chelsea’s fiancé and Billy’s father, Bill is definitely not the outdoors type. He is trying his best to make a good impression on Norman and Ethel.
