Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde will run Sept. 17 through Oct. 16 at the Repertory East Playhouse.

 

Repertory East Playhouse will return to its Main Stage Season with the new adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and sponsored by Good Neighbor Pharmacy.

The show opens on Friday, Sept. 17 with an Opening Night Gala at 7 p.m. and curtain at 8 p.m. Opening Night Gala is sponsored by Forester Landscaping with food sponsored by RSVP Catering and wine by Engelmann Cellars.

A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought 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 interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave.

Join us an hour before the show in the Hydeaway Lounge -- the perfect place to enjoy a pre-performance cocktail and mingle with other patrons. The warm inviting atmosphere puts you right at home the minute you step inside the Repertory East Playhouse. The Hydeaway Lounge serves wine, domestic and imported beers, a wide variety of cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

REP will host post show discussions immediately following each Sunday Matinee. Join the cast and crew for an intimate discussion about the process of creating live theatre.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde will run Sept. 17 through Oct. 16. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Tickets cost $18 for adults and $16 for students and seniors. Group rates are available.

Repertory East Playhouse is located at 24266 Main Street in Newhall, 91321.
