WEST SIDE STORY


Final Weekend! Last Chance to See This Great Show!

“…for once a groundbreaking musical feels like it’s actually breaking the ground a little,
right under your feet.” – Liz Nicholls, EDMONTON JOURNAL
 
“Baker’s … vibrant Citadel production makes a touching statement that is very much of today.”
– Colin Maclean, GIGCITY
“The music…soars—the cast, all from the Banff Centre Professional Theatre Program, possess some willfully gilded pipes—the staging feels crisp and alive: the thrust stage, jutting into the audience, keeps the action close…” – Paul Blinov, VUE Weekly
 
  “It was the ensemble, the team, the admiration for thousands of moving parts both physical and
metaphysical which had the opening night audience leaping up for a standing ovation.”
– Graham Hicks, HICK BIZ BLOG
 
RUNNING APRIL 23 UNTIL MAY 22, 2016 IN THE MACLAB THEATRE
