NEW BRITAIN - In keeping with the Halloween spirit, the Connecticut Theatre Company will tell the classic story of Jekyll and Hyde beginning on Friday, Oct. 13.

Based on the novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, “Jekyll and Hyde” will depict the struggle between good and evil in a musical production featuring pop and rock hits.

It’s a tale of two men -an admirable doctor and a madman - and two women who are in love with the same man and unaware of his dark secret.

Dr. Henry Jekyll is devoted to concocting a chemical breakthrough that could solve some of the most challenging medical dilemmas in humans. He uses himself as the subject to his experimental treatment and unknowingly creates his alter ego, Mr. Hyde.

Performances will be offered through Sunday, Oct. 29 on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 22 and 29, at 2 p.m.

The Connecticut Theatre Company is a nonprofit theatrical and performing arts group serving Central Connecticut. Formed in 2013, the group promotes, teaches and develops interest in the dramatic arts.

It is located at the Repertory Theatre at 23 Norden St.

Tickets are $26.75 for adults and $24.75 for seniors and children under 18 plus processing fee.
