A new twist on an old tale

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a familiar tale that has been spun many times. But Tom Kephart, Artistic Director for the SC4 Players, hints that the upcoming play won’t be the normal Jekyll and Hyde story.
According to Kephart, “This adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde returns to the psychological basis of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella, rather than the monster/horror style familiar to most movie versions dating back to the silent film era.”
“This is a new version of the classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. Henry Jekyll’s experiments with powders and tinctures have brought forth his other self – Edward Hyde, a villain free to commit the sins he is too civilized to comprehend,” as stated by the SC4 website.
Greg Garofalo, who plays one of the Hydes, said “We’ve really outdone ourselves for this production. The cast is outstanding and the story is sure to send a shiver up your spine.”
The showings of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are 5:30 p.m. on, Oct. 16. (Thursday), 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 (Friday), 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18 (Saturday), and 2 p.m. on Oct. 19 (Sunday).
Mature audiences (PG-13) are the recommended recipients of this play.
Tickets are $7 at the door for adults, but admission is free for students that show their Skippers OneCard.
Tickets can also be bought ahead of time by calling (810)-989-5513.
