Midcoast Actors’ Studio announces auditions for The 39 Steps
BELFAST – Adapted by Patrick Barlow from Alfred Hitchcock’s movie and the novel by John Buchan, the play takes Hitchcock’s classic masterpiece and turns it on its head into a fast-paced, riotous, farcical tour de force, which incorporates the entirety of the movie.

Characters include the protagonist, Richard Hannay, one actress who plays three female roles, and two “clowns” (two men, or one man and one woman), who play over 100 different characters. At lighting speed, the “clowns” depict Vaudevillian performers, spies, constables, traveling salesmen, newspaper boys, railroad porters, crofters, inn-keepers and more as the play ranges through the likes of a London music hall, the Scottish landscape of bogs, fog and lochs, railroad cars, and the London Palladium.

Auditions will be held on March 8th and 9th, with callbacks on March 10th – all at 6:00 pm at the Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast. The production is directed by Suzanne Ramczyk, who also directed Cabaret and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime for Midcoast Actors’ Studio. Auditions will consist of readings from the script and a movement audition for those interested in the roles of “the clowns.” Rehearsals begin on April 13th, with performances starting on June 5th and running two weekends.

Please email Suzanne Ramczyk (smramczyk@gmailcom) or Jason Bannister (Artistic Director) at midcoastactors@gmail.com with questions.
