West Side Story
9th December, 2014
Last week saw the performances of the Senior production for this year, West Side Story, the tragic tale of young love thwarted by gang warfare and societal prejudices. The cast and crew performed with passion and professionalism, creating an extremely memorable and moving show. This was an ambitious and challenging project for a young cast but they tackled it with enthusiasm and energy leaving the audience thoroughly entertained and with more than a few tears in their eyes- testament to the beautiful delivery of Sondheim and Bernstein’s music and mature and nuanced acting.
It was produced by Mrs Binnie and the music was directed by Mr Dennis. The production would not have been possible without the involvement and support of our sister school, St George’s, and the many other staff and boys who have devoted their time to it.
