The 42nd Season of the Ghent Playhouse begins with THE 39 STEPS. Adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow, this fast paced melodrama is based on the novel by John Buchan and the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock. This production is being directed by Deena Pewtherer. The 39 Steps opens on Friday, October 7 and runs through Sunday, October 23 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m.
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 two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with non-stop laughs, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, good old-fashioned romance and over 150 zany characters, played by a cast of four.
The cast includes returnees to the Ghent Playhouse stage: Kevin Kilb from last Season’s The Imaginary Invalid & Meaghan Rogers from last Season’s Boeing, Boeing along with new comers Brian Wagner & Christopher Gilbert.
Be sure to reserve your tickets early, especially for the Sunday matinees, while there are still seats available!
Tickets are $20 each, $17 for Friends of the Playhouse and $10 for Students with ID. Tickets may be reserved by calling 1-800-838-3006 or going to the website at www.ghentplayhouse.org.
