Commonwealth Theatre Company is excited to share their 2017 Summer Dinner Theatre season! We open in June with THE 39 STEPS, a zany stage adaptation of a Hitchcock Thriller. In July, the team that brought you CHURCH GIRLS presents another kooky musical comedy — BURGERTOWN!
Tickets will be on sale beginning in March 2017.
THE 39 STEPS
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the film by Alfred Hitchcock
From the novel by John Buchan
June 7 – 25, 2017 | NKU Stauss Theatre
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 and excitement of live theatre. This Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, nearly 100 zany characters (played by a talented cast of 4), and amazing feats of theatre wizardry. A riotous blend of virtuoso performances, some good old-fashioned romance, and wildly inventive stagecraft, THE 39 STEPS amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure.

Set in the Windy City, BURGERTOWN is another delicious musical comedy from the team that brought you CHURCH GIRLS. A timid fry cook (played by audience favorite Roderick Justice) accidentally invents the hottest new craze in the fast-food world — the Triangle Burger — and takes the humble BurgerTown restaurant from its lowly place beneath the tracks to soaring new heights. In this kooky musical adventure, our shy hero overcomes disgruntled customers, corporate greed, and organized crime as he chases success, romance, and a fast-food fortune.
