Max and Beverly Golightly

BYH Faculty & Staff, Max C. Golightly, Speech & Drama Teacher, 1957-1958, 1958-1959, 1959-1960, 1960-1961. ~ ~ ~ ~ Mr. Golightly is a prizewinning playwriter, director, actor and published poet. Mr. Golightly is listed in several Who's Who Anthologies in Theatre and Civic Affairs and is presently a Professor of Theatre and Cinematic Arts at Brigham Young University. He is known nationally as a lecturer in creative writing. In 1970, he was chosen Utah poet of the year for his book, The Morning of Tarus. His recent play The Moonview won a Utah Fine Arts Award in 1974 and was produced at the Moab, Utah, Community Theatre this spring. Mr. Golightly has played many roles, the most recent being Charles in Blithe Spirit in March 1974 at the Promised Valley Playhouse in Salt Lake City. Among the numerous plays he has directed are the opera La Boheme, Kiss Me Kate, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Little Foxes, Richard III, and the world premiere at B.Y.U. of the opera Pilgrim's Progress, and the musical The Order ls Love. In 1975 he was Guest Director, Playmill, West Yellowstone, Montanta. Mr. Golightly was chosen to direct the musical extravaganza Brigham for the 1976 Bicentennial celebration in Provo. From a Tribute to BYU Emeritus Professor Max C. Golightly, who retired from the BYU Department of Theatre & Film after twenty-eight years of teaching, and who passed away on April 10, 1997. ~ ~ ~ ~ Perhaps one of the best ways to introduce the versatile personality of Max C. Golightly is to read his own description from his professional resume: “Retired professor in theatre and film, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah; moderator of playwriting, actor, vocalist, M.C., show host; director of plays: contemporary, classical, and special-effects characterizations; lecturer in acting, playwriting, play directing, poetry, self encouragement.” For any who knew Max, all were amazed when meeting another acquaintance who knew Max through some entirely different aspect of his artistic expression! He was truly a marvel of energy, effervescence and effects. ~ ~ ~ ~ With a Bachelor of Arts in radio broadcasting from BYU, Max began his teaching career in 1951 at Provo High School. Two years later found him at Citrus Junior College in Glendora, California, and four years later, he returned to teach at BYU High School. During his teaching assignments, he completed his Master of Arts degree at BYU with an emphasis in playwriting and directing. He joined the faculty in Theatre at BYU in 1961-1962 where he taught for a span of 28 years. Most of us know that Max’s talents were not all funneled into theatre and education alone. Max had a voracious appetite for writing. His theatrical writings consist of some 30 plays, titles from which won local, regional and national recognition. His poetry also garnered its share of publication and awards. But writing was only a part of what made Max Golightly who he was. He appeared on countless stages, and in a number of films. He directed numerous plays, including tragedies, comedies, farces, melodramas, musicals and premieres galore, for Max was “father” to the new play program at BYU. He also helped develop the Mask Club program and create the Playwrights / Directors / Actors Workshop. ~ ~ ~ ~ But all these lists and titles are not the man we know as Max Golightly. He had the gift of giving (of himself, of his time, and of his talents) to anyone who needed them . . . after which he became the greatest fan, the greatest support, and the greatest praiser of these same talents in others. When Max stood in a group he rarely stood to be seen as himself. He was the first to stand in ovation for another person. Max Golightly isn’t a man one experiences and puts in the past. He is like the best of books that one carries at his side and gleans from often. Max, because of you, we are rewarded again and again! (Excerpted from a tribute presented at his funeral by Rory Scanlon.) ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Retired BYU professor Max Chatterton Golightly passed away April 10, 1997 at his home in Provo. He was 72. He was born May 19, 1924 in Preston, Idaho, to Joseph William and Mable Chatterton Golightly. He lived in Rexburg, Idaho during his high school years, and attended Madison High School, where he was active in dramatics and won a scholarship in vocal music. As part of the United States Special Corps, during the Second World War, he became a member of The Chapeliers, a singing, entertainment company, which toured the European Theatre of Operations in USO and Red Cross centers all over Europe. This group provided the choral members at the funeral of General Patton in Heidelberg, Germany, at the request of the widow of the General. He married Beverly Keith Golightly on September 17, 1948 in the Manti Temple. He taught speech and theatre arts from 1951-53 at Provo High School, from 1953-57 at Citrus Jr. College, in Glendora, California, and from 1957-61 at BYU High School. He joined the faculty at BYU in 1961 as a Professor of Theatre and Cinematic Arts, where he taught until his retirement in 1989. He was an accomplished and well-known writer, and received national honors and first place prizes in poetry and play writing. During 1968-69, he served as president of the national Federation of State Poetry Societies of America, shortly after winning a publication award for his first book of verse, "Ibid.", and in 1970 was chosen Utah Poet of the Year for his book, "A Morning of Taurus." In 1978 he was honored by the Louisiana State Poetry Society as "Distinguished American Poet," for his encouragement of young poets in America, and was given a key to the city by the mayor of New Orleans. He was a distinguished lecturer and reader, acted in 12 movies and in more than 30 plays, directed 54 productions, musicals and operas. In 1975 he directed the BYU bicentennial production of "Brigham!", which featured a cast of 120 and played in the BYU Marriott Center for seven nights. Since 1989, he has served on the Provo Fine Arts Council, and was honored with the Outstanding Contribution of the Cultural Arts of 1992 award.
