Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society members have resumed rehearsals at The Strand Theatre for their upcoming landmark 100th production “West Side Story.

Cast members playing the roles of the show’s two gangs, the Jets and Sharks, are pictured here being put through their dance routines, dialogue and musical numbers.

The cast is working extremely hard at the moment with up to six rehearsals for most each week.

The show’ set is being constructed using welders and drills for the first time instead of saws and screws.

It is a very interesting set that Chris Hennessy has designed for West Side Story and one that will certainly add to the overall production of the show.

Ticket booking for the show will open on February 14.

If you can’t wait until then to reserve your tickets, why not become a patron or sponsor and have your ticket reserved for you before the booking opens to the public.

To do so, simply contact Michael Lonergan or any member of the committee.
