West Side Story

Jack Stigner led a full company of students and professional performers in the staging of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondeheim's 'West Side Story'.

Complete with dance set pieces, a full company orchestra and period costume, 1950's New York came alive in this fondly remembered production. 

Directing 'West Side Story' was in many ways the ideal project following the success of 'Ubu roi'.

The poignancy of this production was made clearer having a cast of teenagers play their corresponding teenage characters. 

For many, the issues of young love and gang culture surround their daily routine.

Filmic quality and developments made in camera technique when the film was produced are acknowledged and embraced in this stage production.
