Full-Scale Musical, “Jekyll & Hyde” Set for July 3-13

LSC-North Harris JEKYLL AND HYDE July 3-13, 2008

Lone Star College-North Harris is once again producing a full-scale summer musical to be showcased for two weekends in July. This season’s offering is “Jekyll & Hyde” a pure pulse-pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom of the Opera,” and a lush, romantic pop score that includes the hit songs “This Is The Moment” and “Someone Like You.”

The show features a trio of star-making roles in Dr. Jekyll (Thomas White), his sympathetic fiancée Emma (Pamela M. Moore) and Lucy (Jamie Mills), the woman he rescues from a life of sin who later succumbs to the uncontrolled passions of Mr. Hyde. The three featured performers, who have extensive backgrounds in community and professional theatre productions, are sure to bring audiences to the edge of their seats.

This summer’s production is directed by John Cash Carpenter, LSC-North Harris drama professor with musical direction by Dr. Dave Faber, LSC-North Harris professor of music. Choreography and costume design is by Stephen Blaschke, LSC-North Harris adjunct drama professor.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. on July 3 through 5, and July 9 through 12 with 2 p.m. matinees on July 6 and 13 in the LSC-North Harris Performing Arts Theatre. The college is located at 2700 W.W. Thorne Blvd., one-half mile south of FM 1960 E, between Aldine-Westfield and Hardy Roads. All tickets are $15. This performance not recommended for small children.
