Ripon Summer Players Present The 39 Steps

Take the first step to laughter and fun by attending the Ripon Summer Players’ production of The 39 Steps. This play began its life as a spy novel and in 1937 became the first big movie hit for Alfred Hitchcock. The Tony award winning version of The 39 Steps is different, mixing Hitchcock with a dash of Monty Python humor and silliness. The 39 Steps features the largest cast in the Ripon Summer Players’ history with 20 actors playing 100 parts.

Featured in the cast are Maic D’Agostino, Jack Christ, Andrea Young, Jessica Pember, Ali LaPidus, Michaela Myers, Katherine Lasee, John Ingemann, Tylor Loest, Eduard Valasik, Jodi Spanbauer, Charlotte Lee, Robert Amsden, Jean Rigden, Brian Reilly, Jake Makzazucake, Helga Rikkers, Tom Truesdell, Robin Woods, and Jim Tronoff. The play is directed by Ripon College theatre professor Kenneth Hill and designed by Susan McDaniel Hill and John Dalziel. The stage crew features JaneMarie Erickson, Bev Christ, and Joseph Johns.

The 39 Steps will open the Ripon Summer Players 18th season and run May 30- May 31 at 7:30 p.m. and June 1 at 2 p.m. in the Benstead Theatre, Rodman Center for the Arts. Tickets for the play are $8 for adults and $7 for seniors and students, and are available at Ripon Drug and at the door.

The Ripon Summer Players are sponsored by Ripon Noon Kiwanis and the Ripon College Theatre Department.
