Church Hill Theatre announces auditions for 'The 39 Steps'

Church Hill Theatre is holding auditions next week for “The 39 Steps.” Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be held via the Zoom teleconferencing app.

CHURCH HILL — The Church Hill Theatre announces auditions for a Zoom radio broadcast performance of “The 39 Steps,” a radio play originally produced by the Lux Radio Theatre in 1937.

The 39 Steps is a mystery that director Christopher Wallace describes as “an action-packed, fast-paced race to the end,” a news release states.

Wallace’s intentions are “to give the listening audience, a wave of nostalgia and wonder of suspense by using tempo and tensions created through sounds and the voices of the actors.”

Wallace is looking for eight to 10 actors to fill the more than 20 roles in the play. All actors will play multiple roles.

Auditions will be held via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. March 1 and 3. Rehearsals and performances also will be held via Zoom.

Broadcasts of the performances will be in a large warehouse where the actors can be social but still physically distant. All Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 procedures and precautions will be followed.

Live performances will be at 8 p.m. on April 9 and 10 and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 11.

To register for an audition and receive audition materials, email your name, age, email and phone number to Stage Manager Michelle Christopher at sea with the subject: 39 Steps Auditions.
