The 39 Steps comes to Colfe’s
Colfe’s School presents this year’s Senior School production – Alfred Hitchock’s classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps from Monday 13 November to Wednesday 15 November. Tickets are now available to book online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/colfes.
The comedy thriller follows the adventures of handsome hero Richard Hannay, who complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache; encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents and romance.
Cast members from Y11-13 were lucky enough to attend a workshop with actor Mike Evans, who played Richard Hannay in the West End production of the comedy caper. “To have the expertise from a professional who played the same role that I’m preparing for gave me an opportunity to develop my characterisation as much as possible,”commented Y13 pupil, Ollie Guindi.
Director of Drama Natalie Maher said “It was wonderful to see our cast interacting with Mike – it was an invaluable experience for our students to improvise off the text. This year’s production promises to be a tour de force of student talent, showcasing all their hard work and effort.”
