Excited students before the musical premiere
I play Maria, a character who knows what she wants and who dares to defy the macho culture, says Selma Svahn, who has West Side Story as her favorite musical.
We make a slightly modernized and cooler version of West Side Story. It is a great musical with many mass-scenes, says Elliot Allain who plays the role of Tony.
I play Bernardo who is the thread leader for Sharks and overprotective big brother to Maria, says Tito Windborg.
West Side Story is about how the macho and gang culture affects us as humans, says Cornelia Gustafsson, who does the role of the aggressive gang member Action.
West Side Story holds many emotions. It is both crying and laughing, says Zoe Kennedy Engblom who plays the character Riff, the cocky leader of the gang Jets.
We have a lot of fun together and look forward to the premiere. West Side Story is a musical with a content that everyone can relate to, says Johan Lindén, Agnes Karlsson, Malin Lönnberg and Tova Ek.
