VALRICO — The Village Players will bring the inner turmoil and conflict of Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical to life with eight performances starting Friday.

The musical, which debuted in 1997, chronicles an experiment of Dr. Henry Jekyll. In his attempt to separate good and evil, Jekyll mixes a chemical formula that he tests on himself, thus awakening his aggressive alter ego, Edward Hyde.

The cast includes Oliver Sprague as the lead Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde, Anita Travaglino as the female lead Emma Carew, and Melissa Doell as Lucy Harris.

The James McCabe Theater went through substantial renovations in 2013, including increasing air conditioning, installing heat, replacing ceiling fans and floor areas, rebuilding the storage loft and carpeting the dressing room.

Performances are at 7 p.m. April 25 (dinner theater) and at 8 p.m. April 26, May 2, 3, 9 and 10. There are 3 p.m. matinees April 27 and May 4. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for students, seniors and military members. Tickets can be bought at the door with cash and check only.

The James McCabe Theater is at 506 N Fifth St. in Valrico.
