North West Side Story
Centrestage's upcoming production of West Side Story is the culmination of a year long project, supported by the Moffat Trust, by the young people from North West Kilmarnock who attend Centrestage Communities Saturday workshops in the Onthank Community Centre. When they started attending classes, the majority of the performers had never sang or danced before and now they are performing one of the most challenging musicals ever written alongside some of Centrestage’s most experienced performers. Along the way, they have studied the themes of West Side Story, based on “Romeo and Juliet” and even performed in a street dance version of Romeo and Juliet during an intensive Easter School course.
Norman Stephens, one of the Centrestage Communities participants said: "I love being apart of a community where I can meet new friends and be part of a family.
