By Frederick Knott. Adapted by Jeffery Hatcher

Forty-seven years after Wait Until Dark premiered on Broadway, Jeffrey Hatcher has adapted Frederick Knott's 1966 original, giving it even more menace and suspense! In 1944 Greenwich Village, Susan Hendrix, a blind yet capable woman, is imperiled by a trio of men in her own apartment. As the climax builds, Susan discovers that her blindness just might be the key to her escape, but she and her tormentors must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller's chilling conclusion. Considered one of the scariest moments ever staged, the final minutes of WAIT UNTIL DARK will keep your heart pounding to the very last second!

 

 

 

THE PRODUCERS!                March 14 – April 7, 2024

White Christmas

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan. Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks.

Mel Brooks' classic-cult-comedy-Broadway-musical comes to the Covedale! Our 2015 production sold out in hours, leaving many laugh-hungry patrons unable to see the show!

Now it’s back!  Come giggle and cheer as a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant try to produce the biggest flop in history, bilking their backers out of millions of dollars! Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! With a slew of gloriously outrageous songs like “Springtime For Hitler”, “Prisoners of Love” and “I Wanna Be a Producer”, the show skewers Broadway while setting the standard for in-your-face-humor. At the core of this insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends, making for a truly boffo show, that won a record twelve Tony Awards. It’s sure to wow capacity crowds night after night!
