So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race.
Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the air force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for dis-guised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him.
May 31st-June 9th, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.

The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge–not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes “his kind and his powerful heart.” Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.

About The 39 Steps
Book by Thomas Ohlson
Directed by Kevin Tribble
Written specifically for Christmas, this popular, wonderfully warm and witty play has been performed successfully throughout the year. It is based on both the traditional Christmas stories and modern inventions, and tells of the birth and boyhood of Jesus, and of his growing awareness of his destiny. It also tells of a would-be fourth wise man and his comic attempts to capitalize on the coming of the Messiah.
“It is a charming, novel play on an ancient theme. Especially timed for the Christmas season, the play emphasizes what must be a constant complaint of Christian clergymen: that the Christ-mas message is being lost through materialism, commercialism, and flimsy extraneousness. The very title is suggestive of the danger.”– Dr. Arthur T. Buch, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Share Zedek, New York City, writing in the Herald News, Passaic, NJ
