As an Honorary Life Member of Clitheroe Parish Church Operatic and Dramatic Society and a former actor and director, I went along to a rehearsal for “Jekyll & Hyde – the Musical”.
I had not seen the show, but have listened to a CD of the music, which really impressed me.
The show has a strong cast of principals; most have played lead roles in previous shows with the society,including Katie Cowburn, David Hulme, Laura Corney and Robin Knipe.
The society has a new leading man, Peter Norris, playing the part of Jekyll (and Hyde). I was very impressed with his acting and singing.
This is a great production not to be missed, a very moving story brilliantly portrayed by a young talented cast who are a credit too the society.
Jekyll & Hyde is at the St Mary’s Centre, in Church Street, from Saturday, February 15th, to Saturday the 22nd. For details of how to buy tickets see the article in last week’s Advertiser or visit www.thopera.co.uk
