MAGNA — The musical Jekyll and Hyde the musical opened on Broadway in 1997. Based on the novel written by Robert Louis Stephenson in 1886, the story has permeated modern culture enough that when one says a person is a “Jekyll and Hyde,” the listener expects a person who has different personalities. The story itself has been adapted into TV shows, movies, plays, and even cartoons. Jekyll and Hyde is quite an ambitious musical for a community theatre to produce. Not only is the story dark and Frank Wildhorn‘s music (with lyrics by Frank Wildhorn, Leslie Bricusse, and Steve Cuden)...Read More

MURRAY — For modern musical theatre lovers, Rent is as well known as Hello, Dolly! for previous generations. I personally remember hanging out at the dorms at USU with my theatre friends performing the entire show from beginning to end, even though at that point I had not seen an actual production. Fast forward 15 years, and I have seen several casts on Broadway, several professional, semi-professional, regional, community, and even the edited high school version. On top of that, there is the movie, and a video recording of a stage performance before it closed on Broadway in 2008. Add...Read More
