The distinguished Dr. Jekyll is a respected doctor in Victorian society, but behind closed doors, he engages in dark research, experimenting on himself and creating his alter ego, Mr. Hyde. This modern adaptation is filled with romance, murder, and mystery.

 

“You find an open door. One no one knows about. And once you’ve crossed its threshold, you will find not one mind but two. Two streams within the consciousness, one on the surface, the other subterranean.” – Dr. Jekyll

He’s “terrific.” He’s “radiant.” He’s one of the most iconic farm animals from literature. Audiences of all ages will enjoy reliving the story of Wilbur, a pig nervous of what his future holds, and Charlotte, an eight-legged friend who sets out to make Wilbur a local celebrity with her magical spiderweb messages. Come see a childhood favourite of many generations come to life as it explores the themes of innocence and change. A great opportunity to introduce University Players to friends and family members from age 5 to 105.

Real Estate

by Allana Harkin

A romantic farce that combines the pressures of real estate and romance. Joel is a mystery novelist stuck with writer’s block, returning home to sell the house his father built. His realtor Emma is a bubbly, determined force of nature that bursts unexpectedly into his life. When his soon-to-be ex-wife Estelle turns up with divorce papers and her new beau Ted (a nervous man with a purse full of hand cream) the whole place turns upside down!

 

“Have you ever wanted to turn your life around, Mr. Hopper? Start over? Wipe that slate of pathetic excuses clean. Well, now you can. That’s what selling this house is going to do for you. A new beginning. A new start. A plan for the future!” - Emma

Recommended Audience: Ages 12+
