A play for children and families in two acts. Here are Milo’s adventures in the Land of Wisdom where he’s forced to think about many new things.

The 39 Steps

by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan

(Winner! 2 Tony® and Drama Desk Awards, 2008. Winner! Best New Comedy, Laurence Olivier Award, 2007)

March 12-16, 2014 in the Fr. O’Donnell Auditorium

Directed by Tegan Siganski

(auditions in December)

About the play:

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 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a 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! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure! The 39 Steps, was Broadway’s longest running comedy, and played its 500th performance on Broadway, May 19th, 2009!

About the Play

A whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with — if he ever had his way with the story.

Anne of Green Gables

Adapted by Peter DeLaurier
from the novel by L.M. Montgomery

Directed by Richard Medernach

About the play:
When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of “kindred spirits.” This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd pleaser.

The show runs about 2 1/2 hours with an intermission.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, INC. (www.playscripts.com)
