adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
from the novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”
by Robert Louis Stevenson
directed by Nick McDonald
Zealous Dr. Henry Jekyll is on a quest to remove all of humanity’s worst aspects–violence, substance abuse, lasciviousness–and is willing to push the stifling bounds of science to achieve it. But he cannot fight the beast within man without fully understanding it, and so puts himself into the shoes of mankind’s perfect monster: Mr. Edward Hyde. But as Jekyll’s study continues, Hyde’s strength grows, and Jekyll enters a race against time to prevent Hyde running roughshod over Victorian London.
“Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” is the first show in Blaine Community Theater’s resurrectional 2018-2019 season, and they have picked a terrifying tale just in time for Halloween season frights and fun. The show includes an array of actors from Whatcom County, both audience favorites and stage newcomers: Rossner Randolph, Laura Pen, Robert Cervantez, Skyler Jones, Alex Gheringer, Deb Manley, Derrick White, and Tori Snyder.
Tickets are $13 or $11 for students and seniors, and will be available at the door or for purchase online via BrownPaperTickets.com beginning October 4th. Performances will run at Blaine High School’s Performance Art Space, on the south side of the new high school building. Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.
