Wait Until Dark Opens at Amelia Community TheatreAmelia Community Theatre presents the classic thriller Wait Until Dark, the opening show of ACT’s 35th anniversary season. It is sponsored by Island Security Systems, LLC.

Playwright Frederick Knott uses a clever reverse plot structure, so the audience knows from the beginning what three con men are after as they search for a doll in a basement apartment in Greenwich Village, home to photographer Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Suzy. The psychological tension and suspense increase as the audience waits for Suzy, aided by a neighbor girl, Gloria, to figure out who she can trust.

ACT’s cast includes Samantha Hilliker as Suzy, and Zachary Martin, Joe Parker, and Doug McDowell as the con men. Jessie Krajewski plays Gloria, Brian Crane is Sam Hendrix, and Will Holder and Don Hughes are policemen.

Performances are at 8 p.m. on October 15-17, 22-24 and at 2 p.m. on October 18 in the main-stage theater at 207 Cedar Street, Fernandina Beach.

Tickets are $22 for adults; $10 for students through college, and are available at ameliacommunitytheatre.org or by calling 261-6749.

The ACT Box Office is open from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
