West Side Story

Tony (Jerome Hillier) & Maria (Emma-Louise Cukier)

May-June 1998

West Side Story is one of the great musical classics. it brought an inprecedented energy to the stage whilst using a Shakespearian plot, a dazzling score, and a totally new style of dance. The original Broadway run opened in 1957 but gained its greatest recognition after the release of the 1961 movie which won 10 Acedemy Awards, including Best Picture. Since then it has been revived many times throughout the world. The Devonport Choral Society’s production of West Side Story in 1998 was the first time that this musical had been performed by an adult cast on the North West Coast.
