A flash mob has taken to the streets of Clitheroe to promote the latest production of ‘Jekyll and Hyde - The Musical’.

Clitheroe Parish Church AODS members surprised shoppers by suddenly bursting into song and dance to promote the show which opens this weekend at St Mary’s Parish Centre.

Adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Gothic novella by the partnership of Leslie Bricusse and Frank Wildhorn, the show is not so much the horror story portrayed in film versions, more a story of high ideals, love, loyalty and hypocrisy.

Dr Jekyll sets out to isolate and control the evil side of human nature, but when he is prevented from experimenting on his hospital patients he uses his formula on himself with tragic results.

The show runs nightly at 7-30pm at St Mary’s Centre from this Saturday, February 15th, to Saturday 22nd, excluding Sunday, with a 2-15 pm matinee on the final Saturday. The show on Wednesday night is almost sold out.

Tickets cost £10 to £12 (£30 family ticket, matinee only), on sale at St Mary’s Centre on Tuesdays from 10 am to noon and 7 to 8pm, Thursdays 10 am to noon, Fridays 7 to 8pm and Saturdays 10-30 to 11-30 am.

The ticket hotline number is 07974 323832.
