Murder, secret identities, and a switchblade named Geraldine set the stage for this white-knuckle thriller that will have you screeching with delight at The Arts Center of Cannon County.

The play is set for performances Aug. 14-29.

“Wait Until Dark” is the story of Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, who is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment. As the suspense builds, Susan discovers her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion. 

Directed by Mary Wilson, this production features Jessica Wells as Susan, Alec Lanter as Mike, Ted Verbeten as Roat, Mitch Shannon as Carlino, Elaina Nelson as Gloria and Thomas Esson as Sam. “Wait Until Dark” is rated PG. 

For health and safety, masks are required in the building, temperatures will be checked at the door, and distancing measures will be in place in the auditorium.
