TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s production of “The 39 Steps” has been extended through Sept. 22 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

“Steps” began as an adventure novel published in 1915 by John Buchan. Alfred Hitchcock adapted the novel for film in 1935.

TheatreWorks’ spoof of the silver-screen classic hurtles a notorious fugitive and a breathtaking blonde from a London music hall to Scotland’s most remote highlands, crawling with devious spies. With a mysteriously murdered agent, a wicked plot to destroy England and a race against the clock to stop it, the show is a tribute to Hitchcock’s most beloved films.

Directed by award-winning and longtime TheatreWorks director Leslie Martinson, “Steps” features four actors playing 139 roles. The cast includes Lance Gardner, Annie Abrams, Cassidy Brown and Ron Campbell.

Performances are slated 2 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $30-$100.
