Theatre company also announce workshop opportunity

Four actors and fifty characters in 100 hilarious minutes as Northern Comedy Theatre presents this very British, laugh-out loud, Olivier Award-winning comedy The 39 Steps based on the classic Hitchcock film. Murder has never been this funny. Suitable for all ages and coming exclusively to St Helens Theatre Royal 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.

Northern Comedy Theatre are also delighted to announce an exciting opportunity for 13-16 year olds to take part in a workshop from theatre professionals on Tuesday July 28. Budding young thespians will receive first-hand experience in comedy, improvisation, physicality and characterisation in a fun environment. The workshop costs £20, which also includes a ticket to The 39 Steps on either Monday July 27 or Tuesday July 28.

To book a place on the workshop, email your name, age and contact number to 39stepsworkshop@gmail.com.
