The cast and crew of Picketwire’s Jekyll & Hyde the Musical are ready to help you jumpstart your spooky season with their production of the phenomenal gothic horror musical by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Briscusse. Production dates are October 12th, 13th, and 14th at 7:30 p.m. and October 15 at 2:30 p.m.
Directed by Picketwire veteran Heather Pidcock-Reed, Jekyll & Hyde the Musical is based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson. It portrays an epic struggle between good and evil alongside a score of pop rock hits. An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, 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. 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.
