AUDITION NOTICE

Music by Frank Wildhorn
Based on the story by Robert Louis Stevenson

Directed by Christina Haviland, Angela Boehm, and Josh Landis

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde 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, Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.

OPA’s production of Jekyll & Hyde is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
