The NOVA Players of Northern Virginia Community College’s Woodbridge Campus will host the theatrical production of “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” at the NOVA-Woodbridge Black Box Theatre, 2645 College Drive. Show dates are Oct. 27-29 and Nov. 3-5 at 7 p.m., with matinees Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. and Nov. 6 at 3 p.m.
“The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” adapted by Noah Smith, was inspired by novelist Robert Lewis Stevenson’s classic tale written in 1886. David Tyson, assistant professor of communication studies and theatre arts at NOVA-Woodbridge, directs and designed the production. He said directing the production was a rewarding experience for him and the cast of 18 NOVA students who contributed to the play.
“This production is a fast paced action melodrama filled with animalistic passions, death and possibility,” said Tyson. “This modern adaption of a classic tale continues to delight audiences as it questions the nature of man. It explores the idea that within every person there is a second person bursting to come out.”
Tickets are $8 for general admission (including NOVA faculty and staff), $6 for all students (including NOVA students) and children 18 years old and younger, senior citizens, emergency service organizations and military. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Only cash will be accepted upon entry.
Open parking for the event will be available in Lot B. For additional information, contact David Tyson at email@example.com.
