Every day from Wednesday, July 18 to Sunday, July 29. Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fastpaced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre. Patrick Barlow adapted the play from the novel by John Buchan and the film of Alfred Hitchcock to create over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four, including Tom Frey, Kraig Swartz, and Bridget Beirne). An on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance add to the fun! PG-13.
