Looking for something to do this Halloween weekend? Then why not head down to the Police Citizens Boys Club to check out The Acting Factory’s production of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’.

The story follows Dr Jekyll who is dealing with what is commonly known as a split personality, which manifests itself in the form of the evil Mr Hyde.

The Acting Factory’s Director Mitch Rist chose to make this adaptation as close as possible to the original.

“We decided not to re-contextualise the story as the atmosphere of the cold London streets adds a lot to it,” he said.

“I’ve attempted to stay faithful to the novel while adding our own flavour to the story, including the part of Mr Hyde being played by Georgina Neville as a male role.”

Guests who dress in either Halloween or period costume will be offered a $2 discount, and $2 from every ticket sold will be donated to mental health research at Western Sydney University’s School of Medicine.

Go along and have a frightfully good time!

‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ will be on until Sunday, November 1 at the Police Citizens Boys Club in Penrith. Performance times are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $15-$25 and are available at the door or at
