The Westfield Community Players will hold auditions for “Wait Until Dark,” a thriller by Frederick Knott that will open their 2023-2024 season. Performance dates are weekends October 14-28, 2023.
Director David Kelley will be assembling a diverse cast for these roles:
Mike Talman - A former cop who’s done time for a scam he and Carlino
ran together. He is in need of money and doesn’t care where he gets it,
but underneath he is a decent guy. 30 to 40 years old
Sgt. Carlino - Talman’s former partner in crime. More of a sleaze,
basically without morals. A man who thinks he’s far cleverer than he is.
40 to 50 years old.
Harry Roat, Jr. - A truly evil man who will stop at nothing to get what he
wants and will eliminate anyone who gets in his way. A sociopath.
30 to 50 years old.
Susy Hendrix - A young almost newlywed, recently blinded in an accident
and working to make a normal life as a blind person. Very much in love
with her husband, Sam. Bright and inventive. 25 to 35 years old.
Sam Hendrix - Susy’s husband. An aspiring art photographer, much in
love with Susy and working with her to get her used to her blindness.
A good guy. Around 30 years old.
Gloria - The upstairs girl who helps Susy and Sam with errands and
chores. A bit truculent, but she rises to the occasion. 9 years old
according to the script.
Two Policemen - Small roles at the end of the play.
Auditions will be held August 6, 7 & 8 from 7-9 PM. At the theater located at 1000 North Ave. West in Westfield. Please bring a resume and headshot if available-audition sheets will be provided. Readings will be from the script. WCP is proud to have an open and inclusive casting policy.
