PRESTON OPERA PRESENT JACQUES OFFENBACH’S LA BELLE HELENE
An irreverent romp through one of the most famous stories from Greek mythology.

With delightful, memorable tunes, larger than life characters and a cheeky 1920s setting you are assured of an evening of enormous fun and romance.

WEDNESDAY 11 JUNE - SATURDAY 14 JUNE 2014 AT 7.30PM
PRESTON’S COLLEGE PRESENT JEKYLL & HYDE
A true musical theatre phenomenon, JEKYLL & HYDE attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run. Now, Preston’s College Performing Arts are bringing the grisly gothic musical to the Charter Theatre stage for a limited run.
An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, JEKYLL & HYDE is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
This gripping tale and the stunning performances from the Preston’s College performers will have you captivated and with a rock-based musical score, you’re sure to be gripped right to the end.
