ABOUT THE PLAY
New York City, 1967. A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. Ending in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls, she turns off all the lights, leaving the players to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
I love a good thriller, and WAIT UNTIL DARK is one of the best! I saw the 1967 movie version starring Audrey Hepburn when I was ten years old, and have been a devoted fan ever since. It was even my thesis production for my masters degree! Playwright Frederick Knott has written a tight and intense story with memorable characters and a relentless dramatic build that will have our audiences on the edge of their seats. I can’t wait to help bring it to life on the 4CP stage – and I want you to be a part of that!

AUDITIONS for

SPRING BREAK

A TAP (Teen Arts Project) Production

Directed by Soren Corbett
Mentored by Geri Carlson Sauls

AUDITIONS: Sunday, November 27 at 6:30PM and Wednesday, November 30 at 7PM

ABOUT THE PLAY
On the first night of spring break, new friendships are made and old ones are tested as the 19 teenagers we first met in WINTER BREAK continue to find joy, wonder, and heartache in the world they’re trying to find their place in. Commissioned for the Educational Theatre Association’s 2022 International Thespian Festival. (Blurb courtesy of Dramatists Play Service)

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
I am super excited to direct Spring Break! These characters hold such a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to watch them be brought back to life and see their story continue! I also can’t wait to work with so many new people both behind the scenes and onstage. As this is a TAP show, we are not only looking for teenagers to perform but others to work/apprentice behind the scenes. Possibilities include set design, lighting design/running lights, sound design, costuming, and props. – Soren Corbett

Director Soren Corbett (with mentor Geri Carlson Sauls) is looking for a diverse group of teenagers AGES 12 – 19 to explore some amazing characters and stretch their acting talents. All roles are written to be gender neutral, and actors of all races and backgrounds are encouraged to audition.

AUDITIONS AND CHARACTERS

– Actors who were in 4CP’s 2022 production WINTER BREAK have been offered the chance to reprise their roles in SPRING BREAK. About half of these actors have accepted, meaning we have 10 roles available for new actors.

– Actors AGES 12 – 19 are welcome to audition for the roles of Andy, Quinn, Jesse, Sam, Brett, Charlie, Corey, Krys, Ty, and Frankie. For full character descriptions, visit this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZpLnEsnQgVZdBbOnbFe3G–MBp70IVqe/view?usp=sharing
