I am so excited to be bringing Jekyll & Hyde to the SCCT stage.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry.  Stevenson’s horrifying and stunningly beautiful characters come to life in this chilling and mesmerizing, powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

Please read on below for character descriptions and to look at the sides for auditions. Please come to auditions relaxed and ready to show us your best. The show is a powerful, passionate piece of work and, due to the nature of the show, will require a cast of dedicated professionals.

You may be given additional cold readings at the audition. If you have any questions, or would like a copy of the script to read ahead of time, feel free to email me at

I hope to see you all at auditions, August 27-29 at SCCT Backstage!


Please come prepared to have fun at auditions. We want this to be an enjoyable experience you!

Auditions will consist of three parts:

1. Singing – Prepare a musical song of your choice, set in the style of the show (only 16 to 32 bars is necessary). This is preferred. Bring sheet music as an accompanist will be provided. Musical tracks are also welcomed via CD or MP3 (a player will be provided). If you plan to sing a cappella, please prepare to sing Happy Birthday. Note: People may be asked to do some vocalizing in order to determine range.

2. Reading – You will be asked to read an actual part from the show (called a Side). These will be provided at the audition and you will have time to look over them before you audition.

3. Dancing – Everyone will be asked to learn a dance routine. Wear something that you can move in. This includes proper foot attire.

Call Backs – Some people may be asked to come back Sunday afternoon to do some additional singing and script reading. People being called back will be notified via phone call.

Casting – The entire cast list will be posted here.

(From the MTI licensing page for Jekyll & Hyde)

“Murder and chaos are pitted against love and virtue in this sweeping gothic musical.

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy and TONY nominated Frank Wildhorn & double Oscar and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.

An evocative tale of two men – one a doctor, passionate and romantic – the other, a terrifying madman; and two women – one, beautiful and trusting -the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both women in love with the same man. Both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.”
