Hole in the Wall Theater October Newsletter

Hello Hole in The Wall Friends and Family!

With the changing of the season comes the spookiest time of the year. And with that, HITW is proud to present a classic tale of terror set in the Victorian age. Directed by John Bosco, produced by Laurie Maria Cabral and Maranda Gallo, and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the mind of Robert Louis Stevenson, we present Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde! Note: NOT the musical.

The classic tale of a Victorian doctor and his inner darkness given life is told through the eyes of madness. We witness Henry Jekyll deal with the ramifications of science gone wrong and the various faces Edward Hyde wears. Will Jekyll truly purge his dark side, or will Hyde destroy the reputation of the good doctor?

Tickets for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are available now at www.hitw.org/tickets. The curtain goes up on October 6th – October 21st Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, with a matinee on Sunday, October 15th at 2 PM. Our Pay-What-You-Can Night will be held on Friday, October 13th. Get those tickets now and prepare for the spooky season!

Auditions for the final show of Hole in the Wall’s 2023 season: The Curious Savage by John Patrick, directed by William Moro will be held Sunday, October 8th at 5 PM and Monday, October 9th at 7 PM at Hole in the Wall Theater.

For the 85th anniversary of Mercury Theater’s broadcast of Orson Welles’ radio adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds,” we are thrilled to have Imagine X Productions on our stage presenting The Night America Panicked. The show will portray a recreation of the radio show broadcast as it occured in October of 1938 – with period costumes, sound effects, and music, as well as the actual events that occurred before, during, and after the broadcast. Tickets for the October 28th show date are available now at www.hitw.org/tickets
