The King’s College Theatre Department will host the regional premiere of Patrick Barlow’s comedy “The 39 Steps” at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 14-16, 21-23 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, in the George P. Maffei II Theater.

Adapted from John Buchan’s 1915 novel and the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name, “The 39 Steps” is a quick-witted “whodunit?” with a dash of Monty Python style comedy. A small cast of four portrays over 150 different characters, caught up in many different coincidences including an on-stage plane crash, thugs, handcuffs, murder, missing fingers and good old fashioned romance. The two time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning show is guaranteed to treat audiences with nonstop laughter.

The production features local actors Brandi George, Emmaus (Annabella, Margaret, Pamela); Nick Klem, South Williamsport (Clown); Kyle McCormack, Mountain Top (Richard Hannay); and Thomas Taraszewski, Pocono Summit (Clown).

The George P. Maffei II Theatre is located in the Administration Building on North River Street. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $7 for non-King’s students and senior citizens.  For more information or to reserve tickets, call the box office at (570) 208-5825 or e-mail boxoff@kings.edu.

King’s College is a Catholic College sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
