To start off their season, the Cypress College Theater and Dance Department is producing Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical. Directed by Theater professor Jim Hormel, the talented students of Cypress College will bring to life the struggle of good versus evil in their first production of the season.
The musical is based on the book by Robert Louis Stevenson and has been adapted for the stage by Steve Cuden and Frank Wildhorn.
Danielle Kristina De Guzman, 21, Theater major, says that the musical is “a show to die for. Jekyll believes that there is good and bad in everyone and that you can separate the good and the bad. But, unable to get approval from the board of governors of the hospital, he decides to test his elixir on himself. What wins over the battle between good versus evil? The good of Dr. Jekyll or the evil of Mr. Hyde? What dangers lie ahead in the eyes of Edward Hyde? Will Jekyll be able to control his experiment?”
The musical opens this Friday, Oct. 17, at the Cypress College Theater. General Admission tickets cost $20 and tickets for seniors, students with a student ID and children under 12 cost $15.
