WAIT UNTIL DARK, playwright Frederick Knott's 1966 Broadway drama that won a Tony nomination for Lee Remick, will play from Friday through Nov. 18 at Hale Center Theater Orem, 225 W. 400 North.
While it had a fairly short run on Broadway, it became a popular film the next year starring Audrey Hepburn, who was nominated for an Oscar. The playwright had a bigger hit in 1952 "Dial M for Murder."
The mostly single-cast ensemble, directed by David Morgan, includes Stephanie Foster Breinholt as Susy Hendrix, a blind girl terrorized by a group of con men trying to find a doll containing a dark secret, with Jonathan Fifield as Sam, her husband.
The cast also includes Oliver Gaag as the villainous Harry Roat Jr., Mitch Hall and Greg Hansen sharing the role of Mike Talman, Jake Suazo and Ricky Kimball alternating as Sgt. Carlino, Shanae Foster as Gloria, a young neighbor girl, and George Anderson and Jeffrey Simpson as two patrolmen.
CLUE, a fast-paced farce based on the popular board game, is a murderous montage of six suspects, six deadly weapons, nine sinister rooms and possibly one killer.
It opens Friday and continues through Nov. 11 at the Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. Highway 89, Perry.
Directed by Kael Harris, the cast includes Greg Christensen as the butler, Rachel Carling as the maid, Nick Velis as Col. Mustard, Meagan Sandall as Mrs. White, Jennifer Alsop Kite as Ms. Scarlet, Ross Reeder as Prof. Plum, Nathan Dunn as Mr. Green and Ann Reeder as Mrs. Peacock all gathered one dark and stormy night to confront their blackmailer, Mr. Body (Brad McCann).
THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE, Gilbert & Sullivan's operetta about a young chap who is mistakenly apprenticed to a band of pirates instead of to a "pilot," opens Friday at the Center Street Musical Theatre, 177 W. Center St., Provo, where it continues on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays through Nov. 18.
WOMEN WHO KICK COMEDY BUTT, a touring ensemble of four female stand-up comics, will perform on Wednesday at Wiseguys, 3500 S. 2200 West, West Valley City.
The group includes Grace White, known as "that old hippie chick," who has performed on Good Morning America; Sue Ferrer of Caroline's, Dava Krause of Second City and Grace Fraga of "Laugh It Off with Grace."
The troupe promises PG-13 caliber humor with no four-letter words or off-color subject matter. It's geared to families with older children and the "date night" crowd.
