“Jekyll and Hyde” Make Debut on Edison Stage

Edison Stagelight Players perform “The Strange Case
of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” at the Robinson Theater
of the Piqua Campus.
The Edison Stagelight Players will add some new twists and turns to the classic tale “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” during a two-weekend run of the play in the Robinson Theater beginning Friday Oct. 26th at 7:30 p.m.

The revised production, based on Jeffrey Hatcher’s 2008 play from famous Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, tells the story of Dr. Henry Jekyll, who experiments with “exotic powders and tinctures” that bring forth his other self – Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend.

When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interests, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. Hyde has other ideas, and the two sides battle each other in a deadly game cat-an-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave.

The production, directed by Edison faculty member William Loudermilk, follows past fall performances of “Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily” in 2011 and “Dracula” in 2010.

Additional shows will be held Oct. 27 and 28, and the following weekend on Nov. 2, 3 and 4. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Robinson Theater of Edison’s Piqua Campus. One morning performance will be held on Nov. 1, at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for seniors.
