West Side Story Set to be Best QE Performance Yet

With less than 2 weeks to go before QE Theatre Academy’s production of West Side Story the excitement and anticipation has begun. 

“With the final touches being added to the urban New York set, the stylised costumes of Sharks and Jets taking shape, the challenging and demanding dances being perfected and each performer finding their compelling character, the West Side Story is set to be one of the best performances that QE has produced” – A very bold statement from Vicky Evans, Head of Drama, as QE Theatre Academy is renowned for their high quality performances.

Due to the popularity of the production, originally directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, and due to the performance quality that has been produced year-on-year by QE’s cast of students, the tickets are selling extremely fast.

However, there is still time to book seats, so to avoid disappointment, please contact the School Library on 01363 778 365 to book your places now. 

Shows run in the QE Drama Hall, Western Road Campus, at 7.30pm from Tuesday 31st Jan – Saturday 4th Feb, with an additional Matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday.

The fantastic cast of QE students look forward immensely to creating an exciting, emotional and dynamic performance and we are thrilled that so many people in the community and further afield will be coming to enjoy and share in our students’ hard work.
