Garfield Center for the Arts
Chestertown, MD
August 29, 2016

Auditions for the Garfield Center for the Arts’ December production of “The 39 Steps” will be held on Wednesday, September 7 at 7pm, and Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 11am.

“The 39 Steps” is Patrick Barlow’s farcical adaption of the classic movie by Alfred Hitchcock. While the play retains much of the movie script, it mixes in a hefty helping of Monty Python-inspired lunacy. Just four actors fill the hundreds of roles in this delightful suspense-romantic-comedy-farce-free-for-all. Our hero, Richard Hannay, is caught up in a mysterious tale of international espionage, which sends him on a frenetic adventure from London to the misty moors of the Scottish highlands. Will he be able to save the day? Along the way there are deadly spies, beautiful femme fatales, a thrilling chase inside (and on top of!) a speeding train, and lots of laughs, and so much more.

The play debuted in London where it won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy (Britain’s version of the Tony), and had a long run on Broadway where it was nominated for and won a number of Tony awards.

“Fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands.”
– The New York Times

“The most entertaining show on Broadway”
– The New York Post

“Ingenious! A dizzy delight”
– Daily News

Director Mark Sullivan is seeking a cast of one woman (age 20s-40s), one man (age 30s-50s), and two women or men (age 20+). Familiarity with the play is helpful, but not necessary. Come prepared to do cold readings from the script, and other materials, which will be provided.

The director is also aiming to create the most talented and efficient stage crew ever assembled for this technically demanding show. If you like to work behind the scenes, please be sure to come to one of the auditions or contact the GCA box office at 410-810-2060.

Performances are scheduled for three weekends: December 2-4, December 9-11, and December 16-18, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM, and Sundays at 3PM.

For more information, visit garfieldcenter.org or call the GCA Box Office at 410-810-2060. The Garfield Center for the Arts is located at 210 High Street in Chestertown, Maryland.
