AUDITIONS FOR The 39 Steps

We are delighted to announce that the Middlebury Community Players’ production of The 39 Steps is back on for fall 2022!

AUDITIONS:

Friday, May 6, at 7:00pm
(register at 6:45pm)

Saturday, May 7, at 4:30pm
(register at 4:15pm)

Ilsley Library Community Room
Middlebury, Vermont

(Enter lower level from back garden,
please come to only one audition day.)

The Middlebury Community Players will present Patrick Barlows’s adaptation of The 39 Steps in September 2022. The play will be directed by Dr. Gary Gillen, who directed MCP’s HILARIOUS production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) in 2019.

In The 39 Steps, four actors play all roles to create the themes and characters of Alfred Hitchcock’s ground-breaking spy masterpiece movie of 1935. It is both a spoof and homage to all the elements of spy movies that would become cliches used by others for decades. Fast-paced and fun!

Casting Four Actors

● Male lead playing Richard Hannay (British) – Ordinary man who becomes a spy

● Female lead playing Annabella Schmidt (German), Pamela (British), Margaret (Scottish)

● Clown 1 & Clown 2  either gender playing the other 30+ parts.

Perusal script available at Town Hall Theater Box Office.

COVID Protocols. All those attending auditions are required to provide proof of vaccination. Masking will be optional for participants. These protocols will be in effect throughout rehearsals, depending on current health recommendations.

Read-through on May 13, with rehearsals beginning in early August on dates to be determined, but we anticipate three days a week held on two weekday evenings (not Mondays or Tuesdays) and one weekend day.

Performances will be September 15-18, 2022
at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury.

Tuck Everlasting is a musical based on the 1975 American children’s novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. Adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, it features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tucks’ unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: Return to her life or continue on with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
