Colonial Chorus Players presents "Jekyll and Hyde" at Merrimack College
by Maureen Fiorello
“Jekyll and Hyde” is an evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create an evil and murderous counterpart.
Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th-century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde. Jekyll & Hyde is pure, pulse-pounding theatre, with a lush, romantic pop score.
Performance Dates March 19th, 25th, and 26th at 8pm March 20th at 2pm
Performed at the Rogers Center for the Arts at Merrimack College in North Andover, MA.
Tickets - $18 for adults, $15 for students/seniors

The Beehive is partnering with Save Venice Boston to create a startling Baroque musical party & dinner to celebrate Carnival/Mardi Gras the Venetian way.
This will be an event worthy of Casanova himself! Enjoy Italian specialties including octopus salad, scallops with Swiss chard and polenta, roast cod with Orecchiette & broccoli rabe and carnival fritters.
Celebrate while an “All Baroque Ensemble” including the best early music players from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge play high energy and thumping classical music. You haven't heard Vivaldi’s, "La Follia" like this before!
Later in the evening, the music will be taken over in a contemporary way by Roberto Cassini and members of Gran Fatilla for a funky take on Italian folk music. "A Carnevale Ogni Scherzo Vale." It means, “...anything goes at carnevale,” It is rarely said aloud, for the words would be wasted, redundant. Plan for a celebration unlike anything you have ever experienced.
Masks, period-style attire and costume are highly encouraged. Reservations recommended by calling 617-423-0069.
