Thursday arts pick: Trouble Puppet Theater’s “The Strange Case of Edward Hyde and Dr. Jekyll”

Trouble Puppet Theater Company brings its imaginative irreverence to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic horror story “Jekyll & Hyde.”

Using tabletop-style puppets that require three puppeteers each, the troupe, led by artistic director Connor Hopkins creates a visual spectacle to tell its spooky, clever, darkly funny story.

Music by Justin Sherburn of Okkervil River.

Note: The show is not suitable for children — it is Trouble Puppet, after all.

“The Strange Case of Edward Hyde and Dr. Jekyll”

8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. Sundays through Nov. 23

Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Road. $12-$20. www.troublepuppet.com
