The 39 Steps
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the novel by John Buchan
March 1 to 24, 2024
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 four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she, and her long-standing best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. With varying levels of encouragement, they persuade four friends and fellow members of the Women’s Institute to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar. They are assisted by hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence, who looked after John in his final days. The success of the calendar goes beyond their wildest dreams and they have soon raised the money needed and much more.
A Comedy of Tenors
By Ken Ludwig
January 19 to February 11, 2024
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong?
It is 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century—if producer Henry Saunders can keep the amorous Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos.
This addition to the Ludwig canon is an uproarious ride full of mistaken identities, blissful romance, and madcap delight.
