Jekyll & Hyde is a show that explores both the duality and duplicity of humanity. The story is filled with raw and vibrant characters. For this production, we are seeking performers of all ages and physical types. Performers with visible body art and piercings are welcome and encouraged at the auditions.

Auditioners should prepare one up tempo and one ballad, preferably something that shows your range and is NOT from the show. Versatile performers with pop/rock style inflections welcome for principal roles.
