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! 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!




AUDITION DETAILS
Casting Patrick Barlow’s comical adaptation of “The 39 Steps,” a fast-paced, often hilariously irreverent re-creation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic mystery thriller film of 1935. Four actors portray some 150 roles. Our leading man, Richard Hannay, meets a mysterious woman at a London music hall. After witnessing her murder, he becomes entangled in solving the murder, proving his innocence, and breaking a spy ring that seems to be attached to the whole affair. All roles require good comic timing.

ROLES:
Richard Hannay (Lead):
Adult Male
A dashing Canadian leading man (a la original star Robert Donat) entangled in the adventure of a lifetime, as he becomes a fugitive on the run to save his own life and foil the spy ring that is trying to silence him, British dialect would be preferred but not required.
 
Annabella Schmidt/Margaret/Pamela (Lead):
Adult Female
Seeking a versatile actress to play three roles a la a young leading lady from the black-and-white films of the 1930s; Annabella is a mysterious alluring German spy; Margaret is young, shy, sheltered, very pretty British wife of an older country farmer; Pamela is our spunky, independent, and very beautiful young British heroine.
 
Clown 1 & Clown 2 (Supporting):
Adult Males
Seeking two character males to share in playing some 150 other roles in the piece, must be extremely versatile, creative, and playful actors with excellent verbal and physical comic timing and a great sense of the genre of the film, Able to use multiple European dialects would be great!
