About Ages 14 -18: Performance Course

This year the 14–18-year-olds will be bringing to life Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award winning whodunnit, The 39 Steps.

When a boring man meets a spy and takes her home, little does he know his whole life is about to change forever.

Working as an ensemble we will piece together this theatrical tour de force in just under three weeks. From a chase on the Flying Scotsman, a death-defying plane crash and with over 139 roles to be filled by the cast, this play really has it all.

This performance course is for those interested in building their confidence as a performer, gaining acting experience with likeminded individuals and working as an ensemble to create a full-scale performance on the Lyceum stage.

Come and join the hilarious joy and slapstick fun with the Lyceum Youth Theatre’s Summer on Stage production for 2024 The 39 Steps.
