The Twentynine Palms Rotary Club will host the opening night gala of “The 39 Steps,” Friday, August 15, at Theatre 29 in Twentynine Palms. “The 39 Steps” started as a World War I espionage novel and became an Alfred Hitchcock film in 1935 before being adapted for the stage. In “The 39 Steps,” Richard Hannay notices a mysterious woman at the theater, and when he returns alone to his London home that night, he finds her dead inside. And with that, Richard is in a headlong run for his life as he fights to clear himself of the murder. There are 150 characters played by just six actors. Doors open Friday, August 15, at 6 p.m. with the curtain up at 7. The $20 ticket price includes refreshments. Proceeds will support the Rotary Club’s scholarships and projects.
