Auditions for The 39 Steps

Announcing auditions for all roles in Worcester County Light Opera Company’s production of The 39 Steps!

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! WCLOC is seeking four maddeningly talented actors to portray the play’s over 150 zany characters:

Richard Hannay:
British. 30-45. Seeking an actor comfortable with the style and able to convey the quality of a 1930’s leading man. The sort that wore the pencil moustache with charm, attractive, but not rakish, pleasantly handsome.

Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Margaret:
25-35. Seeking actress capable of presenting three versions of Hitchcock leading lady. Must have British, Scottish and German dialect.

Clown 1 and Clown 2:
Seeking two male actors, 30s-50s, who will play many roles at breakneck speed, operating as a team and with a flair for dialect, rapidly paced dialogue and physical clowning. Exceptional comic timing and improvisational ability.
