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

When a young book dealer, David Filde, is employed by a former associate of his uncle to catalogue a private library, he finds an incredible array of rare and antiquated books. But as a series of strange and unexplained events conspires to keep Filde from his work, he realizes that if he is to convince his skeptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror, and beyond…

If you thought you knew the story of ‘“The Princess and The Pea,” you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

For those that auditioned for Winnie the Pooh,
I want to thank each child and parent that came to auditions. I had a lot of talented actors and actresses to choose from and that made my decision making very difficult. I made my decisions on facial expressions, line delivery, how I thought a person’s looks would blend with the rest of the cast, and rehearsal schedule conflicts. I really wish that I had a part for each of you. Every one of you did an outstanding job and I would love to see you at auditions for other shows. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage each of you to take a class at FACE. At the end of each class there is a showcase performance and that would be a great experience!
Ok, after having said all of that, here is our…
