North Bend graduate student James Tweedale performed recently in the Western Illinois University Department of Theatre and Dance production of “The 39 Steps” Oct. 25-29.

Tweedale, who is pursuing his MFA at the university, played Hannay in the play, based on the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name. He was the only actor to play a single character. Three other cast members, Samantha Bonzi of Rockford, IL, Matt Bender of Macomb, IL, and Sean Pollock of Dunlap, IL, played more than 30 characters combined.

Tweedale plays the hero, while Bonzi plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and Bender and Pollock play every other character in the show, heroes, villains, men, women, children and more.

For more information, call (309) 298-1543.
