If you’re in the mood for live theater, one of your options this weekend is to head to DeKalb for the Stagecoach Players’ production of “The 39 Steps.” The show opened yesterday, but will feature six more performances, spanning this weekend and next. Showtimes this weekend are Fri. (22) and Sat. (23) at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday (23) matinee at 2:00 p.m. Showtimes next weekend are Fri. (28) and Sat. (29) at 7:30 p.m. and a final matinee performance on Sunday, September 30 at 2:00 p.m.
Show Description (from Stagecoach Players):
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 theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of five), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!
The director, crew and cast describe the show (video):
