Auditions December 3rd & 4th

TAPA is pleased to announce an open casting call for WAIT UNTIL DARK. Before the unforgettable film version starring Audrey Hepburn, this electrifying thriller by Frederick Knott was a long running Broadway hit.

As a blind woman struggles to outwit three criminals, she fights for survival using the only weapon she has...total darkness. This deadly cat and mouse game builds to a heart pounding lights out climax that's sure to leave you on the edge of your seat.

Cast includes Susy & San Hendrix, a young married couple. Three men, Mike Talmen, Sgt. Carlino & Harry Roat Jr. - ages are flexible. Gloria, a young teenage girl and two smaller roles for policemen, who could also work backstage during performances.

In addition to the cast, there is always a need for back stage crew and tech crew. This is your chance to be a part of community theater, on stage or behind the scenes. No experience is necessary. No offer of help is to small.

Auditions will be held Saturday December 3rd and Sunday December 4th at 2:00 PM at the Oregon Coast Dance Center at 106 Main in Tillamook. Performance Dates are March 16,17,23,24,25, 30 & 31.

Character development will be studied in December and rehearsals will begin in January. Contact producer Deborah Coon at 842-3999 for more information.

A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN, it is 1923. Connecticut. Summertime. Prohibition is in full swing, even though hardly anyone honors it. People are still drinking and getting drunk. Irish tenant farmer Phil Hogan and his daughter Josie are visited by their friend and landlord James Tyrone. The brazen Josie is secretly in love with James, whose visit sets off a series of events that threaten the very fabric of the love and the friendship of both families. It all comes to a head on a long moonlit night fueled by drink, lust and grief.

Eugene O’Neill is one of America’s greatest playwrights and A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN is exciting , provocative, scandalous and extremely dramatic. You will be touched to your core by its artistic beauty.

This show contains mature material and is not recommended for younger viewers.
