I wrote a feature about a play opening in Pleasant Grove:
Kathryn Laycock Little and her husband, Howard, have directed productions from Pleasant Grove Players for the last two decades, but with the company’s production of “On Golden Pond,” she gets a chance to be on stage as well.
“I started out as an actress, and kind of have evolved into being a director,” she said. “And directing takes so much of my time that I really don’t have time to act. And I’m getting older, and so the parts are becoming fewer and far between, and so we just decided that it was my turn to be on stage.”
Little previously played in the PG Players production of “Steel Magnolias” several years ago, and now she plays Ethel in “On Golden Pond” — a role that was played by Katharine Hepburn in the 1981 film version.
But it’s not a Katharine Hepburn impression, Little said.
“I don’t want to imitate somebody else, because then all I’m doing is an imitation of somebody else, so I worked pretty hard at coming up with my own stuff,” she said.
