Friday and Saturday shows will be at 8 p.m. with Sunday shows scheduled for 2 p.m.

The show is based on the novel known as :The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” or simply “JEKYLL & HYDE.” It’s about a London lawyer John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his friend Dr. Henry Jekyll and the evil Mr. Edward Hyde.
The story is interpreted as an examination of the duality of human nature, expressed as an inner struggle between good and evil. In an attempt to banish all evil to the unconscious mind and to become wholly and completely good, results in the development of a Mr. Hyde and his Satan like nature, inflicting himself on others. A chilling tale you must see.
