Last night we saw the Coralville Comm Theatre’s production of “West Side Story” at the Englert. It was OUTSTANDING–and we strongly recommend it to you if you can get to one of the two remaining shows–Sat. at 7:30 and Sunday at 2:00. The cast is almost totally high schoolers–cream of the crop from our area schools–and the energy, the voices, the dancing, the directing, costumes and staging,and the orchestra were not short of amazing. We sat in the front of the balcony, which we thought gave us a particularly fine sense of the dance ensembles. Seats are general admission, so early arrival would be smart–there was a big line buying tickets. Enjoy!
