Wait Until Dark is Nov. 3-5

The annual fall play will be happening showed Nov. 3, 4 and 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets will be $8 when bought in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets are sold both online and at lunches.

“I am excited just to get to the shows,” Student Director Sydney Weber said. “Every little part comes together and that’s what makes the show.”

The play, Wait Until Dark, is a psychological thriller about three con-men that ultimately get conned. According to Drama Director Kim Sulzner, the set was not the only challenging part about the production. Not only is the set three stories and has a fully functioning kitchen, but at times the stage will be extremely dark and the cast will have to maneuver around the stage in the dark while still staying in character.

“I’ve never seen us do something like that [the kitchen] before and I think it is interesting,” sophomore Jordan Milewczik.

Something else different about this production is that the lead actress, Delaney Echelmeyer, is playing a blind character. This has not been done in the past. According to Weber, one of the main problems Echelmeyer had while learning to play this character was her eyes would follow movement, something blind people can’t do. Other problems were how Echelmeyer had to walk and interact with props.

“I like watching the characters grow from the first time they [the cast] read their lines to the last production,” Sulzner said.
