HCCT to hold auditions for ‘Wait Until Dark’ thriller

COTTONWOOD SHORES — Final auditions for the Hill Country Community Theatre’s production of "Wait Until Dark" are July 25.

The audition for the first production of the 2011-2012 season is 7 p.m. at the theater, 4003 FM 2147.

The cast for the dramatic thriller — both a Broadway and film hit — includes six men, one woman and one girl.

Written by Frederick Knott, the play opened on Broadway in 1966 and was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. in 1967, according to a news release.

A Hitchcock-style thriller, the play probes which frightens more — the evil you can see coming or the one you can’t.

Directed by veteran actor/director Darrell W. Spencer, who recently moved to the Austin area from Nevada, the theater’s production of "Wait Until Dark" opens Sept. 22 and runs through Oct. 2 with 7:30 p.m. performances Thursday-Saturday and 2:15 p.m. matinees Sunday.
