The Fox Valley Park District is seeking adult performers (age 16 and up) for its fall adult thriller Wait Until Dark, with auditions set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29, at the Prisco Community Center.
“We’re inviting actors and actresses to portray a variety of characters,” said Kyle Donahue, performing arts manager. “It doesn’t matter if you’ve been onstage before – no experience necessary! Just bring your special talents. We always welcome quirky, imaginative people – they are who make these productions great.”
For auditions, candidates should prepare a monologue and be ready to read from the script.
Wait Until Dark is a suspense thriller and Broadway hit based on the story of Susy Hendrix, a blind housewife who unwittingly possesses a doll filled with illicit drugs. Harry Roat, a brutal and sophisticated criminal, coerces two small-time thugs into helping him con Susy into giving up the doll. A battle of wits ensues, building to a dramatic final scene that is hauntingly memorable.
Cast rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m., beginning Sept. 6, with four performances scheduled on Oct. 21, 22 and 23.
