Jekyll and Hyde

Jekyll and Hyde the musical performed by Sainsbury SingersThe Sainsbury Singers presented Jekyll and Hyde the musical on 15-18 May 2013 at The Hexagon Theatre, Reading.

This musical transports the audience back to the dark, smoky streets of 19th Century London where the evil Edward Hyde is wreaking havoc among the unwitting populace.

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale comes to life in this musical version where Dr Henry Jekyll experiments furiously in his laboratory to cure his father's mental illness by trying to separate man's evil nature from good. He tries to allay the fears of his fiancee Emma but unleashes a murderous alter ego, with terrible consequences. There cannot be many productions where so many of the principals don't make it all the way to the end!

Jekyll and Hyde was conceived for the stage by Steve Cuden and Frank Wildhorn. Book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, music by Frank Wildhorn, orchestrations by Kim Scharnberg and arrangements by Jason Howland.
