NEHALEM — Experience Alfred Hitchcock, the master of suspense, with “Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play,” three tales featuring spies, murder and love.

The Riverbend Players present a radio play adaptation by Joe Landry of three early Hitchcock films 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4; 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11; 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17; 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18; and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Nov. 5, 12 and 19.

The show takes place at the North County Recreation District Performing Arts Center (36155 Ninth St., Nehalem).

In “The Lodger,” a landlady suspects her mysterious new tenant may be an ominous serial killer.

An international spy ring plots a massive explosion with tragic results in “Sabotage.”

And in “The 39 Steps,” a man falsely accused of murder races across Scotland while handcuffed to a beautiful woman to recover stolen government documents.

These stories come to life in the style of a 1947 radio broadcast, complete with intriguing characters, on-stage sound effects and live jingle singers. Perfect for heading into the dark and stormy times of winter, this production is directed by Brian McMahon, with assistant director Tom Mock and producer Tom Cocklin.

Tickets are $15. Perhaps them at tickettomato.com or at the door. Children 12 and younger are admitted free.
