Jekyll and Hyde brings the dark side of science and entertainment to Berwyn this weekend. The Main Line's oldest community theater's production will run for four weekends, including a dinner theater party package on Saturday, October 26 at 30 Main, a short walk from the theater.
f you love music, murder and mayhem, then Footlighters Theater’s
production of Jekyll & Hyde, The Musical, is just the thing for you
this Halloween season. Set in the always good for spooky, Victorian
England, J & H is the tale of a dedicated doctor’s descent into
madness. It’s the well known story, his intentions are good but playing
with the ‘sacred life-force’ is a prescription for disaster.
Allen Puy of Exton is the infamous Jekyll/Hyde. His best friend, Gabriel
Utterson (Patrick Ruegsegger, Claymont, DE) tries desperately to save
the good doctor and he’s aided in this attempt at salvation by Emma
Carew (Kellianne Quirk, Morton), Jekyll’s fiancée and her father, Sir
Danvers Carew (Pete Rolston, Berwyn) all of whom try to steer Jekyll
from his destructive path.
Even though Emma’s charms are great, the side
of Jekyll turning into Hyde prefers the affections of lady of the
night, Lucy Harris (Jennifer Roman, Upper Chichester) who entertains
every evening at the “Red Rat”, an establishment on the very wrong side
of town. Contributing to Jekyll’s decline is Simon Stride (Chaz Myers,
Media) an additional suitor for Emma and roadblock to Dr. Jekyll’s plan
for the ultimate cure.
