GTA SouthernStage weds Hitchcock and hilarity in 'The 39 Steps'
Josh Carpenter and Elizabeth Berkes are among the actors scheduled to appear in GTA SouthernStage’s production of Alfred Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps" beginning April 5 at the Buford Community Center.
GAINESVILLE - Richard Hannay is expecting a routine night at the theatre, however, when shots are fired midway through the show, he ends up embroiled in a world of spies, murder and intrigue. This is only the first in a series of wildly unexpected and funny twists in GTA SouthernStage’s production of "The 39 Steps," which opens at the Buford Community Center on April 5.
A free Stage Tour, a sneak peek behind the scenes of the show, will be given at 6:00, Thursday, March 28, in the Sylvia Beard Theatre in the Buford Community Center.
Patrons will hear from director Jim Hammond, Artistic & Managing Director for the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, as well as from designers. The one-hour presentation will end with a scene from the show.
Adapted for the stage from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film by the same name, the cast consists of four actors, who play about 150 characters over the course of the show. This fast paced award-winner packs murder, intrigue, spies, handcuffs, missing fingers, and an onstage plane crash into one night of theatre.
