LCT Announces Auditions for the Thriller, ‘Wait Until Dark’
La Crosse, WI – 11/07/18 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the thriller, Wait Until Dark, on November 26 and 27, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.
A sinister con man and two ex-convicts are about to meet their match. They have traced a valuable doll to the apartment of Susy, a woman who is blind. The men hatch a plot against Susy to retrieve the doll, but Susy uncovers their charade. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues. When darkness falls, Susy sets a trap so her assailants must maneuver in the darkness with her until the game’s shocking end.
Wait Until Dark will be directed by LCT’s Producing Artistic Director, Grant Golson. Golson assumed the role of Producing Artistic Director for LCT in August of 2017. Originally from Overland Park, Kansas, he has worked in fundraising and administration for The Lyric Opera of Kansas City and The ALS Association Mid-America Chapter. Prior to that, Golson spent ten years as an equity actor in New York City and around the country. Midway through that journey, he took a shot at directing and found it to be another great passion. Golson recently received his MBA from the University of Kansas.
Auditions are open for age 8 and up. There are roles available for several men and one girl. A guest artist will be playing the role of Susy.
