Trouble Puppet Theater Company presents:
Oct 30th- Nov 23rd 2014
What does Dr. Jekyll really need to hide?
Trouble Puppet Theater Co. reimagines the classic Jekyll & Hyde tale to create a spooky, clever, darkly funny, and visually spectacular story. Opening just in time for Halloween! The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde & Dr. Jekyll is an original adaptation by the company (currently nominated for THIRTEEN B. Iden Payne Awards!) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, and The Crapstall Street Boys.
Written and Directed by Pat Hazell, and starring Jay Byrd as Earlene Hoople
Enter the colorful world of cable access tv hostess, Earlene Hoople, the self-proclaimed "Queen of Rural Media", as she tapes her Christmas special in front of a live audience. Letters to Mrs. Claus, an outrageous family slide show, fresh-baked snickerdoodles and a visit from the church hand bell choir set the stage for a picture-perfect evening of theatre. Buckle up, because Earlene is dangerously close to crafting her way out of her mind and into your heart this holiday season.
A PORTION OF TICKET SALES WILL BENEFIT AUSTIN POLICE OPERATION BLUE SANTA which provides full holiday meals and Christmas gifts to Austin families in need. www.bluesanta.org
