Auditions tonight for the latest Leeds Theatre and Arts Center play

The Leeds Theatre and Arts Center is taking auditions for their latest play.

Auditions for the Leeds Theatre and Arts Center’s latest show, 39 Steps, starts tonight and continues tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the theater at 8140 Parkway Drive.

Theater leaders say to come prepared to read from the script, bring a resume and headshot, if you have one. Director Suellen Wilkins is looking for 10-12 actors, men and women, for the many roles in the show. The main actor (male age 35-45) will not be doubled. A female actor (age 25-35) will have two roles. The other roles will be handled by an ensemble of actors ages 20 years and up.

Performance dates for the show are October 19-21 and October 26-28. 

The 39 Steps play is not based on the 1915 novel, nor is it based on the 1935 movie of the same title.

The 39 Steps play is a comedy based on the characters from the novel and the movie, but handled in a Monty Python style, with actors performing multiple roles. In 2005 playwright Patrick Barlow adapted a script developed by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon and it is this script to be performed, the theater said.
