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. This Tony Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, more than 150 zany characters, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance.
The play will be directed by Lynne Snyder. Cast members include: Wes Meinhold as Richard Hannay; Becky Loughridge as Annabella, Pamela and Margaret; Paul Luft as Professor, Mr. Memory and others; and Jimmy Coleman, Josh Kaestner and Brynden Raymo as the clowns and all other characters.
