Boyertown Area Senior High’s spring musical, Jekyll and Hyde, is in production and will run Thursday, April 3 thru Saturday, April 5 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 6, at 2 p.m.

“Tickets will sell quickly, for we are one of the first school’s in our area to put on this blockbuster musical,” said Director and East Junior High School English Teacher Mr. Scott Didyoung.

Winner of four Tony Awards, Jekyll and Hyde is based off Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” It is a dark and dangerous love story about Dr. Jekyll, a brilliant scientist driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. When he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, he accidentally unleashes inner demons.

Parts were announced a few weeks ago: CJ Hartung as Dr. Jekyll, AJ Sermarini as Utterson, Ally Bennett as Emma Carew, Courtney Gehret as Lucy Harris, Steven Bachman as Sir Danvers Carew, Ty Botts as Simon Stride, Trent Soto as Lord Savage, Adam Helmer as Bishop of Basingstoke, Madison Devlin as Lady Beaconsfield, Julien Levesque as Sir Archibald Proops, Sean Gallager as General Lord Glossop, Quinn Hair as Spider, Sarah Farmer as Nellie, Zane Rutter as Poole, and Noah Fatzinger as Bisset.

There is an additional ensemble made up of 25 people.
