The 39 Steps at Winthrop

Winthrop University Department of Theatre and Dance presents “The 39 Steps,” adapted by Patrick Barlowe from the novel by John Buchan, October 28-November 1 in Johnson Studio Theatre. Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have “The 39 Steps,” a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre. This two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance. Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets: Wednesday and Thursday $5 with Winthrop ID/$10 general public; Friday through Sunday $8 with Winthrop ID/$15 general public.
