THE 39 STEPS, Directed by Rob Weiner


About the play: The 39 Steps is the hilarious murder-mystery about one normal citizen in London (Richard Hannay) and how he gets mixed up in a dangerous game of espionage, murder and international mayhem!  Typically performed by just 4 actors, our cast will expand to twice that size to give more students an opportunity to perform onstage.  Richard Hannay will be played by one actor, while the other three roles will be split amongst multiple actors – both male and female.  The style is very quick, fast-paced, and broad – we need actors with personality!!!

To get a sense of the show and its style, feel free to go on Youtube and look at clips of performances across the country.

When: Monday, November 28th 3:45-530          Callbacks: Tuesday, November 29th 3:45-5:30


Where: PN Choir Room


Who: YOU!  Sign-up in Ms. Weeks room.  No experience necessary.


What: Audition scenes will be posted on the PN Drama Facebook Page / website and available in Ms. Weeks room.  You will be asked to do readings with fellow auditioners.


The Director is looking for students who are energetic, can speak loudly and clearly, and are not afraid to take chances, try new things, and put themselves out there.  Don’t hold back!!


We will rehearse for three weeks in December and two weeks in January.  There may be some non-mandatory rehearsals during the second week of winter break depending upon cast members conflicts.


Opening Night is Jan. 20 and we will run for two weekends.


I look forward to seeing the great talent that Portage Northern has to offer.  Thank You!
