‘Jekyll and Hyde’ impresses audience

In this year’s school musical, Jekyll and Hyde, the talented student singers and actors presented the tale of a doctor’s experiments gone wrong and the pitfalls of the society he lived in.   This year’s show starred senior Nick Rivera as both Henry Jekyll and his evil counterpart, Edward Hyde. The transformation from Jekyll to Hyde occurred after Jekyll began taking chemicals in order to harness the evil side of man’s dual nature. This transformation complicates Jekyll’s relationships with his fiance, Emma, played by sophomore Meadow Nguy, and his closest comrade, Gabriel Utterson, played by senior Austin Stumpf. Gabriel and Emma’s father, played by sophomore Nate Bittner, attempt to convince Jekyll to regain control over his life once more, but he insists on continuing his experiments until he has transformed completely in the monstrous, murderous Hyde. Throughout his transformation, Hyde commits several murders of the people who originally scoffed at him for his creative, off-the-wall scientific endeavors. Junior Danielle Long, who played a leading role as Lucy, a prostitute that falls in love with Jekyll, is among the many victims. In the show’s final scene, Jekyll’s transformation completes as Hyde emerges at his wedding to Emma. In this moment, Jekyll-critic Simon Stride, played by senior Lucas Bennett, is the final murder before Hyde forces Utterson to stab him. The show ends with Emma sobbing on the body of her beloved Jekyll. Though the musical may not have ended on a happy note, students and visitors alike were astounded by the artistic talent of the cast and Rivera’s chilling portrayal of the dual characters Jekyll and Hyde.
