Daddy's Dyin': Who's Got the Will? presented by Theatre Huntsville

Performing Arts & Film Set in a small Texas town, Daddy’s Dyin’ concerns the reunion of a family gathered when their father suffers a disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. Without becoming ponderous, losing a sense of humor or pandering to timeworn cliches about Texans, this is a bittersweet comedy with funny, tense, and touching moments, and characters you can care about. Tickets for "Daddy’s Dyin’" are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors (65+), students, and active duty military and can be purchased online at www.yourseatiswaiting.org. Call the box office at 256-536-0807 for group rates and handicapped seating. This production is suitable for mature audiences. It contains adult language and mature content.

Daddy's Dyin': Who's Got the Will? presented by Theatre Huntsville

Performing Arts & Film Set in a small Texas town, Daddy’s Dyin’ concerns the reunion of a family gathered when their father suffers a disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. Without becoming ponderous, losing a sense of humor or pandering to timeworn cliches about Texans, this is a bittersweet comedy with funny, tense, and touching moments, and characters you can care about. Tickets for "Daddy’s Dyin’" are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors (65+), students, and active duty military and can be purchased online at www.yourseatiswaiting.org. Call the box office at 256-536-0807 for group rates and handicapped seating. This production is suitable for mature audiences. It contains adult language and mature content. Sept 12-13 & 18-20, 2014 @ 7:30 pm Sept 14 & 20, 2014 @ 2:00 pm. Venue/ Attraction: Von Braun Center Playhouse. Cost: $18 Adults. $15 Students, Seniors (65+), Active Military.
