Olmsted Performing Arts' JEKYLL & HYDE Opens this Weekend
Olmsted Performing Arts (OPA) in Olmsted Falls will unleash the split-personality of "Jekyll & Hyde" on the Olmsted Performing Arts Center (OPAC) stage August 1 -3, and 8 - 10. "Jekyll & Hyde" is headlined by a talented cast of classically trained theatre and musical theatre professionals and is sure to be the most robust, spectacular and entertaining show at OPA yet.
An acclaimed cast - including Michael Padgett as Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde, Rachel Anderson as Emma Carew, Natalie Green as Lucy Harris and Josh Rhett Noble as John Utterson - will electrify the stage with this musical version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of a brilliant scientist and his evil, self made, doppelganger. This evocative tale is an epic battle between good and evil. Henry Jekyll is convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good and he unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.The OPA production of "Jekyll & Hyde" is supported by a grant from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.
"Jekyll & Hyde" will be performed at the Olmsted Performing Arts Center - 6941 Columbia Rd, Olmsted Falls, OH - Aug. 1 at 7 p.m., Aug. 2 at 2 and 7 p.m., Aug. 3 at 2 p.m., Aug. 8 at 7 p.m., Aug. 9 at 2 and 7 p.m. and Aug. 10 at 2 p.m. Childcare will be available at the Aug. 3 2 p.m. show.
