The Draper Arts Council presents the popular musical Jekyll and Hyde in November, at Summit Academy. Liz Edmiston directs a talented group of performers in the musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of good and evil, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Since 1997, the music of Frank Wildhorn (Scarlet Pimpernel, Civil War) has impressed audiences and the lyrics of Leslie Bricusse (Scrooge, Willy Wonka) have invited introspection into the nature of man. Composer and lyricist have won multiple Tony and Grammy Awards for their work. In its original run on Broadway, J&H ran for almost four years, and it was revived again this year. It has been a constant favorite in community and regional theater from the beginning.
Performances will be November 1, 2, 4, 8, and 9, at 7 pm at Summit Academy, located in Draper at 1225 East 13200 South. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children under 12 and seniors over 65. They can be purchased on this website or at the door.
The 2013-14 season is underway! We are enjoying the talented kids performing in Freaky Fridays during October and looking forward to Jekyll & Hyde in November.
Freaky Fridays. In October, the Arts Council collaborates with Draper Historic Theatre and Clayton Productions to present a series of scary concerts, using Broadway and popular tunes in honor of Halloween. Tickets are on sale now.
Jekyll and Hyde, The Musical. The popular musical Jekyll and Hyde will hit Draper in November, at Summit Academy. Liz Edmiston is directing. Tickets are on sale now.
Classic Melodrama. It’s been a couple of years since we gave Draperites a chance to hiss and boo the villain and cheer the hero in an old-fashioned melodrama. To make amends, we have scheduled Showdown at the Rainbow Ranch for early March of 2014, at the Draper Historic Theater. As usual, we will feature olios and sing-alongs between acts, so watch for this supremely family-friendly production. Auditions will be in early January, so watch closely.
Broadway Family Favorites. DAC did not present a BFF this season, but we will bring it back in 2014. This Broadway review offers a marvelous opportunity for Draper’s talented families to perform in short sketches from the most appealing and popular shows of the Great White Way. The tentative schedule is for April 10 through 14, with auditions in early January.
June Musical. The last show of next season will be staged at the Amphitheater in June, with auditions probably in late March or early April.
