Ridge Theatre Company to perform 'Jekyll & Hyde' this summer
For the Reporter
At the Ridge Theatre Company presents "Jekyll & Hyde" at the Kentridge Performing Arts Center, July 24-Aug. 9.
Intended for mature audiences, the evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about 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 from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
At the Ridge Theatre (ART), a nonprofit community organization, is dedicated to providing quality musical theatre experiences for the community. All profits from the production are awarded to the actors in the form of college scholarships. Performers include actors from throughout the region, and are ages 17-55.
ART – in its 14th year of operation – is supported by grants from the Kent Arts Commission & 4 Culture.
