Audition notice

“Chemical Imbalance – A Jekyll and Hyde Play,” a two-act contemporary horror farce, will be presented at the Library Theatre Oct. 10-13. This is a comic/evil adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The play focuses on the bloody experiments of the chemically imbalanced Mr. Hyde. Auditions will be on Thursday, Aug. 8, at 6 p.m. at the theater. Characters will include Dr. Henry Jekyll/Mr. Hyde Euphronia Jekyll – his mother Ambrosia Jekyll – his sister Lady Throckmortonshire – a grande dame Calliope and Penelope Throckmortonshire – her twin daughters, aged 9-12 Rosamunda Dewthistle – eligible young lady Xavier Utterson – cousin to Jekyll Ivy – maid Plodgett – Scottish cook. The roles of Mrs. Jekyll and Lady Throckmortonshire may be played by men. The role of Plodgett requires a Scottish accent of sorts. Other characters will be English. This play is a fast-paced British comedy. Lines must be memorized for quick delivery, and a strong sense of both verbal and physical comedy is necessary.
