Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre

Develop acting, directing, design and technical craft in an integrative program for stage, film and television

The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps is a marvelous, fast-paced comedy full of theatrical delight. The 1935 Hitchcock spy movie gets a hilarious retelling in this award-winning adaptation. Richard Hannay gets plunged into a world of 1935 espionage as he tries to save England and clear his name. Train chases, romance, and ‘whodunnit’ surprises abound in this fun, entertaining show.

That’s a wrap on The 39 Steps! The show was phenomenal and the audience loved it! Congrats to the cast and crew for a great performance, and to the wonderful director Carol Anderson for a job well done!



The show may be over, but it’s necessary to share the final cast interview of the interviewer herself, Rachel Hamilton! She absolutely killed it in the show and we’re so thankful she was able to make the videos of everyone!!



Last chance to see the show is at 7:30 today!
