Hanford is known for Dairy Industry (especially the ice cream), but the Temple Theater is noteworthy as well. Home to the Kings Players, the non-profit organization puts out four staged shows per year at the Historic Landmark. The third installment, Wait Until Dark, is opening Friday September 4 and runs through Sunday, September 27.

theatreWait Until Dark was written by Frederick Knott and is being directed by Jennifer Toledo at Temple Theater. Wait Until Dark is the compelling story of a newly blind woman, Susy Hendrix, who is the mark of three con-men trying to get back a doll that was used to smuggle drugs into the country. Her disability seems to have her at the disadvantage, but her keen sense of hearing helps her to deduce the situation. She must embrace her blindness as a strength, instead of a weakness to best her opponents.

This show is not only a great piece of drama, but it is also an empowering story for anyone who is struggling with a disability. Being partially deaf, director Jennifer Toledo has a special connection to the story. “I wanted to do something that has never been seen at the Temple Theater, I am excited to bring this genre to our audiences.”

thaetreThe cast includes Temple Theater Favorites- Lindsey Surratt, Ron Bates, and John Rabe. More information on show dates and times can be found via www.kingsplayers.net and tickets can be purchased via the same website. Tickets are $12 online and $14 at the door.

The Temple Theater is part of the old China Alley, and is located at 514 Visalia St. In Hanford, California.
