39 Steps posterFrom Limelight Theatre

St. Augustine, FL — Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, and add a dash of Monty Python — this whodunit will keep you on your toes and roaring in your seat!

This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

The 39 Steps is on stage April 13-May 8 on the Matuza Main Stage at Limelight Theatre in uptown St. Augustine. Student/Teacher night begins at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 13 with $5 tickets available only at the door. Preview night tickets on Thursday, April 14 are $15 per person, available online at limelight-theatre.org or by calling the Box Office at 904-825-1164.

Opening night on Friday, April 15 includes a pre-show complimentary champagne toast and meet-the-cast party following the performance.

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
