Don’t be shy, you were born to be a star! Join us at open auditions for Jekyll & Hyde on July 21 & 22, 2019

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping musical tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score. In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating good from evil in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London.

Auditions will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday & Monday, July 21 & 22, 2019, at the theater– 619 South Main Street in the Baird Hardware complex, next door to Akira Wood and across from Heartwood Soundstage. Callbacks will be at 8:00 pm on the second night. 

Please prepare 16 bars of a musical number and bring sheet music. You may be asked to read scenes and dance for callbacks, so please wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement.

Performance dates are Thursdays through Sundays, September 12 – October 6, 2019.

About the ART:

Founded in 1980, the ART develops new talent, plays, audiences and ideas while also celebrating and revivifying the great plays of the past. The ART provides a safe place where people of all ages, genders, races, and beliefs can create unsafe theater– thinking people’s theatre– theater that transforms.

We continually respect, and challenge:

  • ourselves as actors, designers, artists and visionaries to achieve more,
  • our audiences as living, thinking and feeling human beings to engage more,
  • other local theaters and arts organizations to collaborate more,

…and by doing so, help nurture and develop Gainesville, Florida into the center of arts and culture in North Central Florida.

As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the ART is especially dedicated to providing multi-cultural opportunities to the members of our community. The theater is open to all and presents experiences for which there are no other venues in the area. It is also entirely volunteer-staffed and operated.
