Our whole school production of ‘West Side Story’ will take place from Tuesday 6 – Friday 9 February at 7.00 pm in the main theatre.  Tickets cost £12 for adults and £8.00 for concessions and can be purchased through our online ticket site: Your Box Office.  A brief synopsis of the show below:

Young lovers, Maria and Tony, are caught between prejudice and warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, in this seminal retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Transported to 1950s New York City, we explore themes of love, prejudice, and the destructive nature of gang violence. Exhibiting the tragic consequences of hatred and the power of love to transcend societal divisions.
