West Side Story at the Bishopsgate Institute

See the Sharks and Jets up close and feel a part of the action in a brand new traversing production of the Bernstein classic..

26 June 2018 – 1 July 2018 | Visit website

To mark the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, who composed West Side Story, and Jerome Robbins who directed and choreographed the original production, The Bishopsgate Institute are keen to create their own adaptation of the show that will delight new audiences. To many people, West Side Story is the greatest musical ever written, and it is surely one of the best known. This production is far from traditional and features the full 28-piece orchestration as well as a cast of 39 actors.
 
As well as the production itself, the cast and creative team will be doing a very special Pre-Show Talk on Saturday 30 June from 6pm – 6.45pm. They will share insights on how they brought the iconic musical to life and why it’s so important to keep reinterpreting classic productions to make them relevant to each new generation of audiences. There will also be a special performance by Charlotte Vaughan of a song that was cut from the original production went to Broadway, so that will be a real treat for fans of Bernstein and West Side Story alike. Join Director, Toby Hine, Musical Director Ben Ferguson, Choreography Supervisor Guy Salim, Costume Designer Stewart Charlesworth and Associate MD Ashley Jacobs in conversation with writer and broadcaster Christopher Cook as they share insights on how they brought this iconic piece to life at Bishopsgate Institute.
 
The pre-show talk (£5) is on Saturday 30 June at 6 pm. West Side Story is at Bishopsgate Institute 26 June – 1 July.
