Kirkwood Theater’s 39 STEPS

Nov 14 | 8:00pm | $20.00

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! Richard Hannay, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. After he takes her home, while he is sleeping, Annabella is stabbed to death, and he awakens to finds himself the prime suspect for her murder and the target of a nationwide manhunt. While fleeing his potential captors, he embarks on a surprisingly hilarious journey to solve the mystery of the “39 Steps”. Postcard-Hitchock Meets Hilarious! RSVP to Carmen Bumgarner by November 2: or 314-330-0813

Go AWOL to see The Monuments Men

Share Button

The-Monuments-Men-Movie-2014-WallpaperLet’s go AWOL this Saturday for The Monuments Men. Meet at church at 6:30pm to carpool or meet at AMC Creve Coeur 12 at 7:00pm for the 7:25pm showing of this action/adventure/drama/comedy…Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, the film is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
