Jekyll and Hyde
Gala Threatre, Durham
The Gala Theatre Stage School (GTSS) is bringing the gripping thriller "Jekyll & Hyde - The Musical", to the Theatre from Sat July 9 to Wed July 13 with daily performances at 7:30pm and a 2:30pm matinee performance on Wednesday.
Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson, the show features a score by the multi-Grammy and Tony nominated Frank Wildhorn and double Oscar and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse. "Jekyll & Hyde - The Musical" is described by Director Kate Sorahan as "spine tingling". It is an evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil. The classic story follows a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of man's evil nature, Dr Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage and maniacal Mr Edward Hyde. madness, tragic romance, and gruesome murder are on the cards, along with fabulous music and songs.
Members of the Cast were out in Durham on Saturday morning singing songs from the production to promote the show - and they were sounding impressive! This show looks set to be as great a success as last year's production of Phantom of the Opera!
Tickets are just £16.50 (£15 comcession) and available online at http://www.galadurham.co.uk/theatre/index.php
