West Side Story at PVCC

Deadra Miller, staff writer

Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts Brad Stoller is producing Arthur Laurents’ classic musical theatre production West Side Story at PVCC’s Dickinson Theater. There will be four performances of the musical in April 2018.

“Following on the heels of PVCC Theater’s fall production of Romeo and Juliet, its original inspiration, this seminal musical evolves into a show infused with hallmarks of modern times and a nod to the 1950s Broadway original. Brad Stoller and Shelley Cole, who previously joined forces in PVCC Theater’s The Rocky Horror Show (2015) and Cabaret (2017), bring a fresh look at a timeless story of love and tragedy,” according to the PVCC website.

On Monday Nov. 27, Stoller started holding auditions for roles in this production. The performers were talented within their strengths.  Five individuals auditioned for various parts within the play.

“Even though this was the first night of auditions, the talent pool that I have to choose from is exceptional,” Stoller said.

The auditionees had to learn a dance scene, do a read through of a certain scene, and show off their talents to Stoller and the student dance instructor Alissa Bush. Due to the low turnout for the first night of auditions, Stoller’s style of accomplishing his goals for the night was informal.

The performances are scheduled for April 5 – 7 at 7:30 p.m. and April 8 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for general audience and $6 for students and seniors. Free student voucher tickets are available.
