Musical company

A theater troupe will mount its first major production

Since its inauguration just under a year ago, KZN’s First Youth Theater Company has grown with two medley presentations of dance, drama and theater.

Now, under the artistic direction of Dr. Richard Finch, the company is ready to rehearse its first major production, the musical “West Side Story”, which will be presented later this year at the Stable Theatre.

This thrilling show which, through dynamic dance, music and drama, chronicles the impending tragedy of two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, which today resonate strongly in South Africa.
