Marysville-Pilchuck High School POC Drama Club is proud to present the play “The 39 Steps” in the
M-PHS auditorium on November 7th, 8th, 9th and 10that 7:30 pm. Admission is $7.00 for adults and
students without ASB and $6.00 for students with ASB and Senior Citizens.
“The 39 Steps” is based on the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock and the novel by John Buchan, but
with touches of Monty Python thrown in. The show also involves a cast of over one hundred
characters all played by our small cast of nine students. The story begins when Richard Hannay,
our hero, makes eyes at a mysterious woman at a theater, who later turns up dead in his London town
home. Wanted for a murder he didn’t commit, Richard begins a run for his life as a mysterious spy
organization pursues and is alternately pursued by him. The pursuit takes him from London to
Scotland and back, as he fights to clear himself of the murder. Along the way he is hindered and
helped by the beautiful Pamela, who despite her best efforts, ends up handcuffed, literally, to a
man she thinks is a murderer. This show features elaborate chases on board and outside of a train,
a plane chase and mystery that will leave you guessing who-done-it until the very end.
Our multi-talented cast of students include:
- Zach Wells
- Casandra Gramstad
- Atraya Sweet
- Hannah Rudd
- Kiera Sorensen
- Patrick Simpson-Munday
- Sage Fairbanks
- Joshua Brown
- Rachel Dekoning.

Broadway and Off-Broadway, Drama/Adventure/Comedy on the MP Stage!
