Actors Theatre of Indiana (ATI), the resident professional theatre company of The Studio Theater at The Center for the Performing Arts, will present the two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award winner, The 39 Steps (Title Sponsor, Pedcor Companies), Jan. 30 to Feb. 15, 2015.

Based on the 1935 film thriller, The 39 Steps mixes a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, adds in a dash of Monty Python and the result is a sheer comedic brilliance! Four actors who, against all odds, masterfully and hilariously play over 150 characters…sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye!

The 39 Steps is directed by Richard J Roberts (no period after the initial J), who most recently directed ATI’s critically acclaimed production of My Fair Lady. Scenic design is by Bernie Killian, sound design by Joe Court, lighting by Erin Meyer and costumes by Amanda Bailey. Actors Theatre of Indiana welcomes Lisa Ermel (Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Ensemble), Ian McCabe (Clown #2) and Logan Moore (Richard Hanney) who make their ATI debut in this production. Artistic Director and ATI co-founder Don Farrell, returns to the stage in the role of Clown #1.

The production runs Friday, January 30 through Sunday, February 15 and performances are Wednesdays at 7:30pm (discounted ticket rate of $25.00), Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm in The Studio Theater, 4 Center Green, Carmel, IN 46032. We will present our talkback series, “Behind the Curtain” sponsored by Matt the Miller’s Tavern, featuring the cast/production crew of The 39 Steps directly following the Sunday, February 8 performance.

Ticket prices for all performances are $40.00 for adults, $36.50 for seniors, $20.00 for students (18 and younger) and may be purchased online, actorstheatreofindiana.org or by calling the box office, 317.843.3800. Group rates are available through the box office for groups of 15 or more.
