critically acclaimed X-entricity Theatre are coming to
the Blake Theatre on the 3rd and 4th of March to perform
what can only be described as a phenomenal production
of Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse's 'Jekyll and Hyde
has been in existence for five years and has lead the
way in musical theatre in Herefordshire. Following the
Ross-on-Wye run of Jekyll and Hyde, in January this year
it was said, "Everyone wondered if it was possible to
match last year's superb production of Les Miserables
by X-entricity. The answer is an emphatic YES! Jekyll
and Hyde is now leaving people wondering if it's possible
for X-entricity to get any better!'
in Victorian London, Dr Henry Jekyll, a well-respected
and brilliant practitioner is searching for a chemical
that can separate good and evil in people's lives - hence
ridding the world of evil and curing mental illness. This
driving passion has been fuelled following the death of
his father. Finding opposition at every turn and unable
to find a willing volunteer to try his formula out on,
Jekyll realizes he must make himself the subject of the
experiment. The results are catastrophic, tragic and heartbreaking.
Journey back with us to 1888 if you will and witness the
consequences. And as for Mr Hyde - well he's just around
the corner and waiting . . .
and Hyde the musical' is theatre at its best - high drama,
spectacular colourful scenes, intense characters; a gripping
story line and the music is hauntingly emotive.
cast are extremely talented and drawn from 4 counties.
X-entricity exists to provide an outlet for particularly
gifted young performers up to the age of 25 and they have
a tremendous reputation for excellence. They boast a powerfully
strong chorus. Niki Chesham and EJ Martin share the tragic
role of Lucy, who falls in love with Dr Jekyll yet becomes
entrapped with the evil Mr Hyde. Daisy Campey and Jennifer
Allen share the role of Jekyll's fiancé Emma. However
the title role of Jekyll and Hyde is played with astonishing
skill. Gareth Wigg is superb in the part shifting from
one character to the next without any need of make up
or special affect. It is quite something to witness.
production cannot be missed. X-entricity is a company
