Tryouts for the upcoming Lincoln County On-Stage production of Wait Until Dark. Auditions will be at the LCOS theater (108 E. 8th St., Chandler) on Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9, at 2:00 p.m. both days.
Primary roles include four men, one woman, and a female child approximately nine years of age. There are two additional roles for either men or women that are limited to one scene.
Wait Until Dark is the story of Suzy Hendrix, a blind woman being stalked by three con artists seeking a doll filled with heroin that has inadvertently come into Suzy’s possession. The plot is filled with twists, turns, and surprises culminating in a heart-stopping ending.
Debuting on Broadway in 1966, Wait Until Dark experienced a number of Broadway and London West End revivals through the years. Audrey Hepburn was nominated for her performance in the 1967 film version of this thriller.
Daisy Folsom, LCOS board member and University of Central Oklahoma drama professor, directs this final production of the 2016-2017 LCOS season. “We need six strong actors for this show: four men, one woman, and one female child,” Folsom said. “I’m eager to see newcomers, especially men, try out for a role. The three male actors playing the con artists will be challenged due to so many layers in their characters. For those cast in the play, I promise to make it a wonderful experience!”
Wait Until Dark, written by Frederick Knott, is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. This LCOS production is made possible through a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council.
