THE PAUL BUNYAN PLAYHOUSE PRESENTS "DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE"

OPENING WEDNESDAY JULY 3rd IN THE HISTORIC CHIEF THEATER, DOWNTOWN BEMIDJI

This is not your grandfather's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In this elegant re-telling of the classic tale by Jeffrey Hatcher, the audience becomes part of a smart, tense, suspenseful take on Robert Louis Stevenson's look at the evil that lurks in the hearts of men. In the end, despite the legion of villains in the play, it's the tug of war between Jekyll and his own erupting sense of shame and disgust that leaves the most indelible mark on the mind. A dark and disturbing story liberally peppered with psychological thrills that make an old-hat horror story scary again, the dark intensity of the drama is unrelenting, even through the well-timed laughs. It would be a sin to miss this play where everything old is new again...and even more diabolical.

Performances of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” are underwritten by Paul Bunyan Communications and begin Wednesday July 3rd at 8 PM in the Historic Chief Theater, continuing through Saturday July 13th. Ticket prices for the 8:00 p.m. evening performances are $22 for adults, $10 for students and $20 for groups of 10 or more. The Sunday July 7th 2:00 p.m. matinee performance tickets are $18. All tickets may be purchased through the Playhouse Box Office at 218-751-7270 or online at http://www.paulbunyanplayhouse.com
