MYACT Presents Death Takes a Holiday
Date(s) - 12/22/2019
Mountain Youth and Community Theatre
Please join Mountain Youth and Community Theatre for our production of ‘Death Takes a Holiday.’
Although “death” is in the title, the operative word is “HOLIDAY!” Based on the 1934 film, Death Takes a Holiday is a celebration of the limited time we spend on earth.
In Death Takes a Holiday, it’s just after World War I and the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young Prince, and for the first time experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life. The show began as an Alberto Casella play from the 1920s that was made into a much-loved 1934 film starring Fredric March as Death, disguised as a debonair nobleman. The original film was remade in 1998 as Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins.
