COTTONWOOD SHORES — The Hill Country Community Theatre announced the cast for February’s lightning-fast comedy spoof, “The 39 Steps.”

Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic film, and the classic spy novel, “The 39 Steps,” is adapted by Patrick Barlow. It runs Feb. 15-March 4 at the nonprofit theater, 4003 RR 2147.

Cody Petty, previously seen on the Hill Country Community Theatre stage in “Rabbit Hole” and “A Don’t Hug Me Christmas Carol,” plays the role of Hannay, the unwitting victim of circumstance who finds himself wrapped up in a world of intrigue and deception. Katherine Clay, who you might remember from HCCT’s “Murder Weapon,” takes on all three female roles for this show. Sharing all the other roles in the play are Graham Avery and Doug Hart, who between them play about 40 different characters.

Directed by Laura Gisi, “The 39 Steps” is an hysterical spoof of all the classic Hitchcock thrillers. From “Rear Window” to “The Birds” to “North by Northwest” and many others, these four talented actors will tackle them all with a healthy dose of humor.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, Feb. 8, to the general public. Season subscribers may make reservations beginning Monday, Feb. 5.
