The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

Hove Park students were invited by Sussex University's Widening Participation team to a production of ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde’. The musical was performed and directed by current Sussex University students who are members of the Sussex Musical Theatre Society.

The event, which was attend by four other schools in the Sussex, included a tour of the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, as well as some English and drama activities and a chance to find out more about student life at Sussex.

Mia Hollis, Year 10 said: "We had an fantastic day at Sussex University. The musical was superb and we were amazed at how good the performances were especially Dr Jekyll who convincingly transformed into Mr Hyde before our very eyes. We are studying the novel next year so this introduction to the text is really beneficial!"
