'Doctor Jeckyll' transforms at Riverfront Theater starting July 11
Second Street Players will presents the summer comedy "Doctor Jeckyll, No Place To Hyde" by Pat Cook on upcoming weekends, July 11-13 and 18-20.
No one could be more meek than poor Henry Jeckyll, scampering to and fro at the whims of both his fiancée and his mother. So when he invents a potion to make weak men brave, what better subject to use it on on than himself? The potion not only makes Jeckyll more aggressive, but allows him to grow a lot more hair. After only one treatment, he finds himself dodging the police and explaining just how that horse got into his surgery. Throw in a wisecracking servant, a whining fiancée, an overbearing mother and a man-hungry sister and suddenly his well-ordered life becomes one long alibi. On top of all this, he soon finds himself turning into the crazed Sir Hyde even without drinking the potion.
Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., and Sunday shows are at 3 p.m. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased at brownpapertickets.com or at secondstreetplayers.com. All performances are held at the Riverfront Theater, 2 South Walnut St. in Milford.
