Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Multiple Hydes are portrayed by members of the cast in this new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders and tinctures” have brought forth his other self — Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle.

With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

About Theater Works School Programs

Educators searching for arts integration programming that meets Common Core Standards are only a phone call away from affordable community resources.

Theater Works designs many of its productions with classroom integration in mind – from performances timed specifically so classrooms can attend during the school day, to study guides that teachers can download and present to their classrooms before the show and follow-up materials for student discussions after the performance.

Some productions offer teacher and student edition study guides that cover such subjects as the history of the shows to Vocabulary lessons for words found throughout the performances (fill in the blank and crossword puzzles, to information on the theatrical process and questions from the text of the play.

Both adults and youth learn best through participation and direct involvement. Using these materials teachers can help students gain an appreciation for theatre not just as a form of art but also English, History, Science, Math and other topics imperative to their social well-being.

These programs are developed so we can work together with educators to transform young people and communities through theatre arts.
