Firehouse Theatre Company Announces 2012-2013 Season
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
By Robert Louis Stevenson, Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Brian Brooks
October 5-November 3
A 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 each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. With multiple Hydes portrayed by members of the cast.

Sherry Wickman, a young woman expects the perfect career and life to fall into place immediately upon earning her master’s degree in art therapy. Instead, Sherry finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and back at home hiding out in her twin-sized childhood bed. But when Sherry gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to brighten up. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her very first therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.

This exhilarating musical comedy exposes the spirit and determination of six out-of-work steelworkers from Buffalo, NY. Desperate for money and respect, they find themselves contemplating the unimaginable…a one-night only striptease! Lacking dance skills and sporting only average physiques, they vow to do something that no other local act has done before — bare it all and go for “the full monty!” But will they have the guts to go through with it? This Broadway smash hit will make you cheer for the courage and antics of hard-working men everywhere.
