About The ProductionThe 39 Steps – equal parts Hitchcock, spy thriller, and Monty Python – is a fast-paced “whodunit” perfect for four strong and versatile actors. It has won two Tony Awards and is filled with constant laughs, over 150 characters, romance, and even an onstage plane crash. The 39 Steps opens at PM&L on Friday, January 31st, and will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until Sunday, February 16th. Actors should be available for four nights of rehearsal a week.
Audition NotesAuditioners will be reading selections from the script. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out audition paperwork. The play calls for a lot of physicality so actors should be prepared to move.
