Classic thriller Jekyll & Hyde on stage at Brierley Hill Civic Hall
An amateur theatre group from Dudley is hoping to thrill and delight this week with a performance of Jekyll & Hyde.
Brierley Hill Musical Theatre Company is putting on the show at Brierley Hill Civic Hall this week, running until Saturday night.
The performance opens tomorrow evening and tells the story of debonair and enigmatic Dr Jekyll, played by Alec White, and Jekyll’s evil incarnation of Mr Hyde.
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn.
In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London.
Deborah Glennon of BHMTC said: "Alec is amazing as the dual personality of Jekyll and Hyde from the uplifting song ‘This is the Moment’ to the final confrontation showcases his ability to portray the different sides of the same man.
"This spell binding show, with a 16-piece orchestra, will keep the audiences on the edge of their seats until the final notes fade away."
Jekyll & Hyde is showing Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 7.15pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.15pm.
Tickets cost £15 for adults and £14 for concessions and are available from BHMTC.co.uk or by ringing 034 5658 8095. They are also available on the door.
