chemical imbalance: a jekyll & hyde play by Lauren Wilson
A darkly comic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In Victorian England, repressed impulses burst their corsets as Dr. Jekyll’s experiments in the nature of evil threaten to reveal the bloody hands beneath the gloves of the British Empire. A fast-paced romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin spectres of good and evil.
August 23rd 3-5pm in the MRHS PAC (Theater) Attend this workshop so you can get a leg up on your audition by: learning about the time period, plot, and style of the show. You'll get a feel for each of the characters and who you might play best. You'll also get time to practice the audition and rehearse through the call back material.

August 25th 3-5pm in the PAC (Theater) Dress in comfortable clothing and please fill out the online audition form prior to the audition. The audition will consist of two things:
Performing the Audition Monologue.
Reading a scene with a randomly selected partner.
This show takes place in the Victorian Era of London, England so all accents are highly encouraged, but understand that I'll be judging your creativity, voice, and movement before your accuracy of the accent.
***If you would like to read the play in advance, I have been told that you may find it by simply searching "Chemical Imbalance pdf" on Google... I have been TOLD... (wink, wink...)
Interested in joining crew?
Acting isn't you thang but you still want to be a part of the fun? Crew is the team that puts together the set, light, sound, costumes, makeup, and front of house responsibilities. It's an exciting opportunity to create the world of the story that the actors live in, plus you'll learn skills you can take with you beyond theater.
