Roxy’s Downtown is thrilled to present the musical sensation Jekyll & Hyde, opening on Thursday, February 22. This timeless tale about the struggle between good and evil blends the classic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson with a mesmerizing score by multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse.

Jekyll & Hyde is an evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women in love with the same man, both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind's most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

The creative team for Jekyll & Hyde includes: Rick Bumgardner (Director), Jackson Dorris (Director), Simon Hill (Musical Director and Conductor), Joseph Urick (Assistant Director and Choreographer), Michael Downs (Scenic Design), Arthur Reese (Lighting Design), Jason Huffman (Sound Design), Gwyn Birk (Costume Design), Tracy Ciambra (Property Design), Richard Shultz (Master Carpenter) and Rachel Downs (Scenic Painting).

Jekyll & Hyde stars Nathan Oesterle as “Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde,” Shannon McMillan as “Lucy,” Sarah Ziegler as “Emma Carew,” “John Keckeisen as “Simon Stride,” and  Nick Albrecht as “Gabriel John Utterson.” The cast also includes Lyle Valentine, Dennis Arnold, David Raehpour, Charleen Ayers, Justin Petersen, Cody LaCrone, Haylee Couey, Sabrina Hamble, Abri Geist, Caitlyn Fox and Tom Frye.
