Jekyll and Hyde

The Londonderry Musical Society will stage one of their most exciting productions to date, Jekyll & Hyde, in the Waterside Theatre later this month.

Written in 1997 by Leslie Bricuse and Frank Wildhorn and currently running on Broadway, the story charts the anguish of Dr. Henry Jekyll over the inexplicable mental illness of his father.

He is obsessed by the belief that he can separate the dual elements of good and evil which are constantly struggling for supremacy inside every human being.

Newcomer to the LMS, Damian Kivlehan, plays this very demanding dual role and to say that he has a strong voice is a gross understatement.

There are also elements of romance, pathos, humour, dancing, choral singing and political and social comments making Jekyll & Hyde one of the best of the modern shows.

The production is once more in the experienced hands of Producer Deigh Reid, Musical Director Jim Goodman and Choreographer Vanessa Chapman.

This will be the first time ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ has been performed in the city and is highly anticipated.

Tickets are available from Waterside Theatre, (028) 71314000.

All tickets on Monday 31st March are £10.50. Tuesday 1st to Saturday 5th April, all tickets £15.50 (Concessionary £12.50).
