The theater program is an awesome place where people come to show off their talents. The program is open to everyone, not just people in Mrs.Brown’s classes. Some actors have taken the start of this year to do the play and have put in so much hard work. The cast members really deserve a nice audience and a full house. Come see the play, The 39 Steps!
The 39 Steps is a mystery-comedy that is adapted from the novel by John Buchan and the film by Alfred Hitchcock. The play is mainly played for laughs and is full of puns referencing to other Hitchcock films. One night while in London, Richard Hannay will become involved in an international spy ring relating to the 39 steps. He meets agent Annabella Schmidt who ends up getting murdered in his apartment. Hannay will embark on a long journey to clear his name and figure out what the 39 steps are.
This show has been in the making for about two months. Stage managers are Hallena Hall and Emilio Gutierrez, Kaycee Parker is in charge of lightning and backstage help is Quentin Jeans and Mr. Rhoades. The cast members are: Trevor Ulric as Richard Hannay, Hayley Harrison as Pamela Edwards, Arilyn Quackenbush as Annabella Schmidt, Yasmin Conchas as Margaret Crofter, Kim Kinney as a clown, Sherif, and John Crofter, Nathaniel Morales as a clown, and Professor Jordan, Megan Forsyth as Mrs. Jordan, Kyle Cottrell as Milkman, Mr. McQuarrie, Mr. McGarrigle, and Albright, Taylor Roy as Mrs. McGarrigle, Justice Wilson as Mrs. Higgins and Mrs. Dunwoody, Caleb Williams as Mr. Memory, and Samantha Kamrath as Compere.
