Hornsby Musical Society looks to explore the duality of man with Jekyll & Hyde.

Updated: Apr 23

About the show Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

Name and role: Tim Selby, Director

Tell us about yourself: I've been doing shows since I was 14, so this show marks my 20th year in the theatre.

What can audiences look forward to when they come see the show? They can look forward to seeing a more abstract, grounded interpretation of Jekyll and Hyde that has not been done before.

How has the rehearsal process been? The rehearsal process has been fantastic. Everyone has acted professionally which will certainly show when it comes to performance time. It's also apparent that everyone has been enjoying rehearsals as we can't get them out of the hall after we finish for the night.

What do you like about the show? Why did you choose to be involved?  This show has always been a personal favourite that I've wanted to be involved in. I chose this show as it explores the duality of man, and whilst it doesn't reach the same heights as Phantom, it has some of my favourite songs in theatre.

Which cast member do you think audiences should keep an eye out for? You need to keep an eye on Nathan Lomas - he's an absolute star and we are very proud of his hard work and dedication to the role - it's also the role I would want hands down. But would happily accept anything else in this show. Even if it had two lines.

What do you want the audience to think about? What is the message of the show? I want the audience to consider their moral compass and what makes a person "good"

Hornsby Musical Society's production of Jykell and Hyde is showing at the Pioneer Theatre in Castle Hill from May 3rd -12th. For ticketing and more information please click this link
