This ingenious comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a cast of four into more than 100 zany characters (in 100 minutes) with a mix of Hitchcockian masterpiece, juicy spy novel and a touch of Monty Python. The winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit that's brimming with action and romance. Accused of a murder he didn't commit, Richard Hannay flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures -- as well as an unlikely love connection. Gasp and guffaw as four talented actors re-enact the entire film (including every train chase, plane crash and murder), gleefully portraying the many spies, villains and other intriguing characters that inhabit this action-packed world.

Northwest Children’s Theater and School Presents __Go, Dog. Go!
__ Story by P.D. Eastman, adapted by Steven Dietz and Allison Gregory, music by Michael Koerner
_“Big dog!” “Little dog!” “Big dogs and little dogs!” _
__Bark __by popular demand! Straight from the pages of P.D. Eastman’s children’s classic, __Go, Dog. Go! __is a rollicking free-for-all musical world of doggy fun, complete with crooning canines that dance and drive!
_“Some big dogs and some little dog going around in cars!” _
A barking cast and howling tunes make this show a ‘tail-wagging’ good time! With an ensemble lead by John Ellingson (the Cat in the Hat from NWCT’s Seussical), this show pulls a troupe of fourteen actors and acrobats and live musicians on stage to create this doggy display!
_“Dogs at work.” “Work, dogs, work!” “Dogs at play.” “Play, dogs, play!” _
Directed by NWCT Artistic Director Sarah Jane Hardy, this charming adaptation by Steven Dietz and Allison Gregory aims to “celebrate and explore the existing words and pictures… in the same way that a child (and parent) can read through Mr. Eastman’s book night after night and find something new and remarkable with every turn of the page!” This much-requested remount again features acclaimed NWCT Artist in Residence John Ellingson as the MC Dog, with an ensemble cast including Claire Aldridge, Emily Bryan, Connor Delaplane, Madeleine Delaplane, Peter Elgee, Grover Hollway, Bryan Kinder, Stephanie Roessler, and Sophie Shely.
_“A green dog over a tree.” “The green dog is up!” “Go, dogs. Go! The light is green now!” _

_“Do you like my hat?” “I do. What a hat! I like it! I like that party hat!” _
Award-winning costumes by Mary Rochon turn plain old actors into playful pooches, while lights by Jeff Forbes sparkle and shine on an inventively flexible set by Patrick Larsen, and props by kollodi and music direction by Rodolfo Ortega makes this show a colorful canine cabaret!
_“Big dogs, little dogs, red dogs, blue dogs, yellow dogs, green dogs, black dogs, and white dogs are all at a dog party! What a dog party!”
_ __Go, Dog. Go! __is presented through special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences.
