The 39 Steps

Our Spring Production will be “The 39 Steps,” a comedic murder mystery in two acts
Adapted by Simon Corbie and Nobby Dimon from John Buchan’s 1915 novel of the same title and Alfred Hitchcock’s movie of 1935
Presented by arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Director: Jo d‘Angelo

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have “The 39 Steps,” a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theater.

Synopsis:

A man with a boring life meets a sultry woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! This hilarious adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps includes amazing special lighting and sound effects, and of course, superior acting. This will be a show to remember.

Erik Rodenhiser plays the protagonist, on the run from a sinister spy organization.

Ursina Amsler plays 3 leading ladies, a secret agent, an ingenue, and a country wife.

Curtis Eames and Nick Gregoretti play every other character, including heroes, villains, men, women, children, and even the occasional inanimate object.
