Auditions for MCP’s
 “The 39 Steps”
in November!

AUDITIONS for The 39 Steps
Sat/Sun, Nov. 20 & 21, 2021
3:00 to 5:30 PM at the Ilsley Library Conference Room
Middlebury, Vermont
(Enter lower level from back garden,

please come to only one audition day.)

The Middlebury Community Players are pleased to announce auditions for a February production of  Patrick Barlows’s adaptation of The 39 Steps. The play will be directed by Dr. Gary Gillen, who directed MCP’s HILARIOUS production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) in fall 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

Rehearsals begin on December 12 with dates to be determined, but we anticipate three days a week held on weekday evenings (except for Mondays and Tuesdays) and weekends.

Performances will be February 11-13, 2022.
