The acclaimed "Jekyll & Hyde" cast - including Michael Padget 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.

With a big cast, a stellar set and an epic vision, directors Angela Boehm, Christina Haviland and choreographer Josh Landis are assembling the "must see" show in the Cleveland area. The low cost of tickets, the acclaimed cast, and the classic story will send Olmsted Performing Arts into a new decade of increasingly quality productions.

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.
