COLLEGEVILLE PA – The classic horror tale, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” will be staged by the Ursinus College Theater troupe nightly Oct. 7-10 (2009; Wednesday through Saturday) at 7:30 p.m. in the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center’s Lenfest Theater on the college campus in Collegeville PA.

The production, directed by Ursinus associate professor of theater and dance Domenick Scudera, features the original 1887 script by T.R. Sullivan, which was recently rediscovered by a scholar whose lecture will coincide with the production.

Tickets are $5 for general admission and $2 for students and senior citizens. For more information and to reserve tickets, call the Kaleidoscope box office at 610-409-3795.

The original script approved by author Robert Louis Stevenson, who wrote the book in 1886, was re-discovered by editor Martin Danahay. Danahay will lecture Oct. 10 (2009; Saturday) at 6:15 p.m. in the Kaleidoscope Black Box Theater.
