Mr. Lorah's Classroom Sketch Comedy Show presented by StageCoach Theatre

Don Lorah has worked with the StageCoach Bandits Improv Troupe for several years. In this comedic one-act skit, he combines his years of experience as a classroom teacher, time as an improvisor, and a lifetime achievement in being inappropriate. He will go through a “typical” school day and audience members will participate as students. Join us for what will surely be a day on the wild side!


Third Friday of every month

The 39 Steps at StageCoach Theatre

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy. The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound woman from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies? A cast of four actors plays numerous characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium.
