Auditions for 'Wait Until Dark' scheduled

The Conway Dinner Theater, a part of the Faulkner Academy of Art, announces their new play for fall will be “Wait Until Dark” and auditions will be held Saturday, August 30. You must call 501-339-7401 for an appointment. Performance dates are Oct. 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 and Nov. 1 with a rigorous rehearsal schedule before that.

This is a horror story that could have been ripped from today’s newspapers. Experience the suspense as Suzy does battle with her stalkers. It is a true nail-biter in the Hitchcock tradition. There are parts in this play for six males, one female and one child--a girl who should look about twelve years old.

Conway Dinner Theater exists to give opportunity to FAA students, community residents and our own trained professional musicians and actors to be involved in theater. Past performances have included award winning plays, Broadway musicals, operas and melodramas. Auditions are open to the public and are held as announced in the calendar.

All profits from catering and concessions go to scholarships for deserving young musicians. The theater is located at 2201 Washington Avenue, Conway with the entrance on Hutto.
