The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress (or sometimes actor) plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
Join NLT's cast and crew as we celebrate the a timeless classic of A Christmas Carol but with a Natchez Twist. Set in Natchez after the war between the states. Scrooge following in his now deceased business partner Jacob Marley's footsteps, has become a stingy cruel man who makes profits from the misery of down on their luck cotton planters and freed slaves who are fighting carpet baggers for work. One night Scrooge is visited by Jacob Marley who tells him of three late night visitors. First to visit is the ghost of Christmas past, who shows Scrooge scenes of days gone by. The second is the ghost of Christmas present and the last is the ghost of Christmas future. Can the visions shown to Scrooge by these ghosts be changed or is it too late? Join us and see.
