Your Old Fashioned Die Hard Holiday Broadcast
by Penfold Theatre Company
Dec. 17 - Dec. 22, 2022
Many of you have been asking for a special "after dark" holiday script for years and here it is! This script-in-development is ready for an audience and we have quite the team to share it!
After years of sincere retellings of beloved, nostalgia-soaked Christmas stories, Penfold Theatre invites you to a version of Die Hard, reimagined as the irreverent, “Prairie Home Companion” Christmas Special that never should have existed. Because some nights Christmas just isn’t Christmas until Bruce Willis drops Alan Rickman off a California skyscraper…on a wholesome 1940’s radio broadcast.
Make it a double feature for just the right mix of classic holiday magic and irreverent fun.
A staged reading directed by Jonathan Young, it features:
- Lowell Bartholomee (A Miracle on 34th Street) as Hans Gruber
- Joseph Garlock (Henry V) as John McClain
- Sarah Marie Curry (Ghost Quartet) as Holly
- Kenah Benefield (A War of the Worlds) as Argyle and Al
- Christine Hoang as Takagi and Detective Robinson
- Kevin Percival (A Midsummer Night's Dream) as Eillis and Karl
- Ryan Crowder (A War of the Worlds) as vocal foley
