Farewell to Jekyll & Hyde

Today's show is the final performance of Jekyll & Hyde. It seems like only yesterday that I auditioned and now, a scant 3 weeks after our opening night, the show closes.

It has been an amazing experience. I've met and worked with some of the most wonderfully talented people I've ever known and I hope to keep at least some of these people in my circle of friends permanently.

It is with mixed emotion that I prepare for this final performance. I don't want it to end, but alas, in community theater, dems da rules.

Jekyll & Hyde Opening Weekend

We started rehearsals in August. It was a long, arduous process for many. For me, not so much since I get killed at the end of the first act. I pretty much sit out the second act except to help with scene changes, costume changes and such. There is one additional scene where I make an appearance as a ghost, but that's pretty much it for me.

This weekend, the show opened. The audiences so far have had very, very favorable comments about how much they enjoyed the show. Some of the people in this show are so talented, it's amazing they aren't already working on Broadway.

We've got two more weekends to go. If any of you are in or near NJ, come down and see it. Stay after the show and say hello.
