Black Hills Community Theatre continues its 50th season with the thriller Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which is based on the novella by Robert Louis Stevenson. In the back alleys of Victorian-era London, Dr. Henry Jekyll experiments with “tinctures and powders” which unleash his sensual and villainous other self – Edward Hyde. Stevenson’s classic is adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, one of the most prolific and critically acclaimed playwrights in contemporary American theater. This production contains violence, adult themes, and substance abuse. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde will mark the BHCT directing debut for new Artistic Director Zach Curtis. This adaptation is performed by an ensemble of only six actors who portray all the characters in the tale. The cast of BHCT veterans features Jace Brock, Rodger Hartley, Jason Knox, Michelle Martinson, Jeffrey Alan Smith and Kory Yamada.
