Four St Helens Stars ‘Step’ Back On To Theatre Royal Stage

Written By: Mark Armstrong

Provided By: St Helens Theatre Royal

Northern Comedy Theatre presents a local production of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps which has been brilliantly and hilariously recreated for the stage.

The smash hit Olivier Award Winning Comedy comes to St Helens Theatre Royal for three performances on Monday July 27 and Tuesday July 28.

This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four of St Helens’ finest born and bred talent, all of whom are no strangers to performing on the Theatre Royal Stage, including Theatre Royal’s very own workshop-trained Benjamin Engelen who starred in Regal Entertainments 2013’s smash hit production of Bouncers: The Remix and in Liverpool Empire’s 2014 Christmas panto Aladdin.

Starring alongside Benjamin is Harry Moore, who audiences will recognise from Sky 1’s Little Crackers as well as countless Theatre Royal shows including 2013’s Peter Pan.

Multi-talented actress, dancer and opera Singer Kathryn Chambers (Alan Ayckbourn’s Seasons Greetings) will show off her skills as she portrays the three different love interests throughout the show.

The object of Kathryn’s affections will be aimed towards Tom Platt (Cabaret, St Helens Theatre Royal’s production of Ciggie Run, West End production of The Play That Goes Wrong and UK Tour of Peter Pan Goes Wrong) who leads the cast as Richard Hannay and also co-produces the show.

Follow the incredible adventures of the handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.

The four fearless actors play an incredible 50 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action in a show that is fun for the whole family.

It would be criminal to miss this witty and clever crime-caper, so book your tickets before they all disappear!
