West Side Story Review

Ann Banks


Well done to all of our cast, crew, orchestra and helpers for a wonderful school production. 

Over 100 students entertained audiences with their amazing talent in our Performing Arts including; music, acting, singing and dance. 

Many hours of dedicated rehearsals culminated to a showcase of spectacular choreography with passion and enthusiasm shining throughout the performance.

The fabulous and talented orchestra played to the highest of standards and set the scene as the drama unfolded.

Congratulations to our teachers who have guided and supported our students in their many roles.
