AVENTURA CENTER PRESENTS
THE NATIONAL TOURING PRODUCTION OF
“ON GOLDEN POND”
This funny, moving play tells the story of Norman and Ethel Thayer, who are spending their forty-eighth summer at their tranquil home on Golden Pond. Norman is cantankerous, on the cusp of 80, and alarmed at his faltering memory. Ethel is a decade younger and attuned to his every need. She sees his flaws but loves him unconditionally.
Their daughter, Chelsea, upends their idyllic summer when she arrives with her fiancé, his teenage son, and lots of emotional baggage, ultimately confronting her father about their fraught relationship.
On Golden Pond was first produced Off-Broadway in 1978. The play was revived on Broadway in 2005. The best known version was the 1981 film that starred Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda and daughter Jane Fonda playing what seemed to be a screen version of their own troubled father-daughter relationship, which won three Academy Awards.
The production will appear at the Center for one night only, March 21, 2018 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $45 to $49 through Ticketmaster or at the Center’s box office located at 3385 N.

WORLD PREMIERE OF ‘TIME STEP”
THE TAP DANCE SPECTACULAR
OPENS AT STAGE DOOR THEATRE
That recognizable rhythmic tap combination ...the time step, a term that derives from the era of great tap dancers who used their distinctive footwork to set the pace of the music. A mix of European jig, Reel Steps, Clog and African rhythms all combine to create an exciting new dance style. This was, some say, the creation of Tap in America as a theatrical art form.
The term comes from the time of great tap dancers who used their distinctive Time Step to tell the band the desired tempo. Time Step is a figure in International style Cha-cha-cha. In various rhythmic ballroom/ social dances, Time Step sometimes refers to steps in place that mark the characteristic rhythm of the dance, “2-3-cha-cha-cha. In tap, the common time steps are classified as single, double and triple. While these are the universal time steps, dancers often choose to create their own time steps- following the pattern, two bars repeated 3 times with a 2 bar break.
From Kevin Black, creator of many popular musicals comes this world premiere celebration of the artistry of tap dancing... TIME STEP now on stage through May 6, 2018, evenings at 8 p.m. matinees 2 p.m. All tickets are $48 available at the box office located at 8036 W. Sample Road, Margate.
