2017 Combined College Production

The audition information packs for our 2017 Combined College Production of -West Side Story- will be distributed early next week with auditions to be held early in Term 4.

West Side Story takes the story of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and transports it to modern-day New York City, as two idealistic young lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
