Kenwood High Drama Club to present West Side Story

What: The director, theatre teacher Jessica Taylor wrote: “West Side Story is about power, frustration, and belonging but most importantly it’s about the curse of prejudice and how it can tear people apart. West Side Story shows the harsh reality that no matter how much love two people can have, sometimes hatred has the final word. Working on this show provided us all the chance to engage in rigorous discussions about race, discrimination, immigration, gender, violence, and inclusivity. This show, though written 63 years ago, echoes the very same issues that society is facing today and is what makes West Side Story so timeless.”
Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults.
