AUDITIONS!


Make plans now to audition for Jekyll & Hyde on Sunday, January 30 OR Monday, January 31 at 7:30 PM. Auditions will take place at Town Theatre.

About the Show
The struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde is an evocative tale of one man with two personalities–A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

Two women fall for the same man, but his different personalities. One woman is beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret.
