Photo Flash: First Look at Frank Weidner, Patricia Butler and More in Kentwood's THE 39 STEPS

Kentwood Players presents the Tony Award winning comedy thriller "The 39 Steps" from Friday, January 11 to Saturday, February 16, 2013 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester (LA 90045). The production is directed by Ben Lupejkis, and produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete and Tony Pereslete by special arrangement with Samuel French. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock, "The 39 Steps" is a hilarious, comedic, and faithful rendering of Hitchcock's classic. Barlow based his adaptation on the original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon of a two-actor version of the play, but Barlow's version calls for the entirety of the 1935 mystery-thriller movie to be performed with a cast of only four playing all 30 characters. Thus the film's serious spy story is played with tongue firmly in cheek, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo, and North by Northwest.

Featured in the cast are Patricia Butler, Shaina Zalma Ostroff, Karl Schott, and Frank Weidner.

Tickets are $18.00 with a $2.00 discount for seniors, students, servicemen, and Metro riders who present their same day ticket or monthly pass when purchasing full price tickets at the box office. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (310) 645-5156 during box office hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 4:00-7:00pm. You may also purchase tickets online at www.kentwoodplayers.org.
