UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Jan. 17, 2023 -- The Masquers Drama Student Organization at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls will present “The 39 Steps” adapted by Patrick Barlow at 7:30 p.m. February 1-4 in the Sanford Syse Black Box Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy. The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland's most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies? A cast of six actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.
The play is directed by Devon Sundt, a UWRF Stage and Screen Arts major from Osceola. The cast consists of Ellanora Guse of Zimmerman, Minn., as Annabella Schmidt; Lucy Curtis of Amery as Margaret; Mary Rother of Hudson as Richard Hannay; Madison Miller of Somerset as Clown 2; Meredith Bowermaster of White Bear Lake, Minn., as Clown 1; and Laura Klein of Green Bay as Pamela.
