The 39 Steps  
Ames Center The 39 Steps
 
This clever comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a handful of actors into more than 150 zany characters with a mix of film-noir panache, spy-novel thrills and more than a touch of Monty Python-esque absurdity. The two-time winner of both Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit about a man accused of a murder he didn't commit, who flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures, as well as an unlikely love connection. Join just four talented actors from the Chameleon Theatre Circle as they reenact the entire story on the black-box theater stage at the Ames Center, gleefully portraying the many spies, villains and other intriguing characters that inhabit this action- and laugh-packed world.

A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol  
Bunker Hills Dinner Theater A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol
 
A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol is one part Fargo (minus the woodchipper) and one part A Christmas Carol shaken vigorously and served over ice. It's Christmas Eve in Bunyan Bay, Minn., and cantankerous bar owner Gunner storms out of an argument with his wife and takes to the lake on his snowmobile. Next thing you know ... crash! The ice breaks and Gunner plunges through. After he's rescued, a coma-ridden Gunner journeys to a dream world full of surprises, not the least of which is a visit from the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future -- all played by folk legend Sven Yorgensen. Gunner's unusual journey gets a fittingly rare soundtrack, with original songs like "Gramma Cut the Christmas Cheese," "The Wheel is Turnin' but the Hamster Is Dead" and "I Love You More Than Football."
