Coronado Playhouse presents "The 39 Steps" running March 24 through April 23.

Hitchcock meets hilarious in this award-winning stage adaptation of the murderous classic thriller. Director Desha Crownover ("Seussical") makes a welcome return to Coronado Playhouse to bring you this multi-award winning, ingenious and entertaining theatrical extravaganza.

Four actors, 139 characters and 100 hilarious minutes await as you journey back to 1930s Britain and meet the painfully English (and painfully handsome) Richard Hannay.

Watching a Music Hall performance by Mr. Memory – an act that shows a man’s incredible photographic memory – Mr. Hannay hears off-stage shots being fired. In the terror and confusion, he finds himself in the clutches of a beautiful woman, Anabella Schmidt, who later reveals herself as a spy. Anabella lets Hannay in on a plot she has uncovered called 39 Steps.

The very next day he finds her dead and so disguised as a milkman (obviously), Hannay escapes London and flees to Scotland. Then the real adventure begins.

"The 39 Steps" ran in London’s West End for nine years, the fifth longest-running play in the history of London theater.
