Split personalities, murder and intrigue abound in the fall play, Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play.

The play will run Oct. 12-15, with shows at 7 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a matinee at 2pm Sunday. All shows are in the auditorium.

Chemical Imbalance is a darkly comedic retelling of the classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

“It’s really funny and dark,” junior Aaron Stulak, who plays Lady Throckmortonshire, said. “I think people will definitely enjoy the play.”

The cast has been working hard to make the best show possible.

“We try to do our best, people should come to see me,” Joseph Ybarra, who portrays a police officer, said.

Junior Austin Ceccacci, who plays Dr. Jekyll, was optimistic about the show, which faced challenges after a two-week gap in production after Harvey.

“It will go well, we will always pull through and make the shows good,” Ceccacci said.

The proceeds from the play are going to be used to help Harvey victims in the school community.

“People should come to see our talent and all of the money will go to hurricane Harvey victims,” junior Drew Ford, who plays Ambrosia, said.

Tickets are $5 for students with ID and $10 for the general public.
