“This is the moment …” The epic battle between good and evil is fought in Jekyll & Hyde, bringing new life to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story. A whirlwind odyssey pitting man against himself is set into motion when the brilliant Dr. Jekyll’s medical experiment backfires, giving life to Edward Hyde, his evil alter ego. Featuring the hit songs “This is the Moment” and “Someone Like You,” Jekyll & Hyde is an evening of theatre you will never forget. Please Note: Contains adult themes and situations

Seeking:
Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde (30’s – 40’s):
