The Stage is Set for “Jekyll and Hyde”

The Truman theatre department will present “Jekyll and Hyde the Musical,” at 8 p.m. April 15-18 in the James G. Severn’s Theatre in Ophelia Parrish. A preview night is scheduled for April 14.

The musical was conceived for the stage by Steve Cuden and Frank Wildhorn; book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse; and music by Frank Wildhorn.

“Jekyll and Hyde the Musical,” an evocative take of the epic battle between good and evil, is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th-century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.

All tickets must be reserved in advance and can be picked up at the box office in Ophelia Parrish Monday-Friday 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. beginning April 7. For more information about the musical contact the box office at 785.4515.
