Jekyll and Hyde

September 27 – October 13, 2019

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Ticket prices: $27 General Admission, $24 Seniors/Military, $14 Student/Youth. Buy tickets here.

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over. An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself – both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret.

A portion of Jekyll and Hyde the Musical’s proceeds will be utilized for Community Crisis Services suicide prevention/intervention efforts.
