Jekyll and Hyde to entertain Homecoming crowds

For immediate release
Oct. 8, 2002

A beautiful, thought-provoking show is in store for audiences when the Abilene Christian University Theatre Department takes the Civic Center stage in its annual Homecoming musical October 18-20.

"Jekyll & Hyde," a musical adapted from the Robert Louis Stevenson novel, presents the classic story of a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. According to Adam Hester, chair of the ACU Theatre department, this year’s show will give audiences something to think about.

"This play offers a great forum for discussion about medical ethics and especially bio-ethics," Hester stated. "As we move into this new millennium, it will be important for us to discuss some of the ramifications of cloning, stem-cell transplants and other medical procedures that are contemporary parallels of this play."

Jekyll & Hyde performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. Tickets range from $5-16 at the ACU Theatre Box Office at 674-ARTS (2787).
