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! This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

Dean Productions Theatre Company is a nonprofit that benefits children affected by cancer. Make sure to arrive by 7:15 for the pre-show where we showcase the work we do with these children.

In short, I absolutely loved it!

It's such a huge undertaking, it's all talk, talk, talk for one thing and everything hangs on the audience being able to follow the plot and the various characters switching about between the two actors who really must be wringing wet by the end of it.  So bravo to everyone for even attempting it, and to succeed so thoroughly is quite astonishing…and in a park, at night!

“The 39 Steps” is only playing at Brand Park for a short time, so please do yourselves a very big favor and pack your picnic, a couple of cushions and a blanket and go and see it. It's totally free too!  Although they would appreciate a donation, they have a wonderful cause, they all work with children with cancer, creating plays with them, one of which they actually performed before the play. It was lovely!  Also congratulations to the crew. I cannot imagine how difficult putting on this show must be in a theatre, let alone a park!  A brave director indeed!!

For good solid fun, there's nothing like a cheeky satire of an otherwise serious espionage mystery, and 39 Steps, made famous by Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 thriller, is just the ticket for our current political climate. Dean Productions, and founder/director Rebecca Lynne, brings her talented cast to Glendale for a FREE short run that I hope you'll catch.
