Come to the comedic play “Is He Dead?”. Made by the man who brought you timeless stories such as “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” and adapted to the stage play by David Ives, this performance is sure to be worth your time and money.
A French painter named Jean Francois Millet, played by Asa Brayton, is in love with Marie Leroux, played by Madalyn Alyse Alston. However, Millet is in debt to an evil picture dealer, Bastien Andre, who threatens to imprison Millet for his debt to him unless he marries Marie. In order to prevent Andre from marrying his lover, Millet finds a way to make enough money to pay back Andre. Realizing that dead painters are more prosperous and fortunate than they are alive, Millet fakes his own death and disguises himself as his own sister, a widow by the name of Tillou. Will Andre manage to come back to his former life and marry his lover once and for all? Find out when the play hits the stage in December at the Pasco High Gymnasium!
Pre-sale tickets are $3 and tickets at the door are $5. Performances will be on the 5th of December, the 7th of December, the 12th of December, and the 14th of December respectively. The play will start at 6:00 pm on all these dates, so if you decide to attend the play, make sure not to be late!
According to the drama teacher of Pasco High School and the key coordinator of this play, Mr. Titherington, people need to attend and see this play at Pasco High School and Dade City to, “…allow us to ignore the 2016 election and have a good laugh.”
This December, come to the Pasco High School Drama Club’s performance of “Is He Dead?”, and sit back, relax, and enjoy the hilarity of the play.
