BLOOMINGTON – Tickets are now available for Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington’s student production of Nicholas Briggs’ “Jekyll and Hyde,” a stage adaptation of Robert Louis Stephenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
Briggs’ production was first presented at the Theatre Royal Nottingham on August 1, 2015. The Ivy Tech production marks its United States premiere following a successful regional tour of the United Kingdom. In his adaptation, playwright, Nicholas Briggs, the voice of the Daleks and Cybermen in “Doctor Who,” explores the dark story of Dr. Jekyll, who seeks to prove there is good and evil in every person. In doing so, Jekyll’s experiments, while proving to be true, unveil his evil alter ego, Mr. Hyde.
Ivy Tech’s Student Production of Jekyll and Hyde concludes a season in which producer Paul Daily, artistic director at Ivy Tech Waldron, sought to explore the eternal question of evil with a wide range of approaches. “This production ends the season on a note of warning,” Daily said. “We may think we have control when playing with evil, when in reality it controls us.”
“Jekyll and Hyde” runs April 12-20, 2019. Student and Senior tickets are $5. Adult tickets are $15. Tickets can be purchased at the Buskirk Chumley box office at 114 E. Kirkwood Avenue, or by visiting bctboxoffice.org
