Rave reviews for West Side

Written on the 20 August 2013

Congratulations to our outstanding team of West Side Story performers, musicians and crew. For four stunning nights the Scotch College Chapel resonated with the sounds and sights of one of the world's great musicals. The production received rave reviews with many standout performances being acknowledged through published critical reviews.

The talented young cast not only inject some much needed earnestness and vigour into such familiar material, but they pull it off with a polish and finesse comparable to the best adult amateur dramatics companies in Adelaide.” (Adelaide Theatre Guide)

(Scotch) have the knack of taking that much dreaded phrase ‘school production’, hurling it on the floor, trampling on it and then flinging it out the window and producing instead theatrical magic with a vibrant, energetic cast of young students.” (Glam Adelaide)

While this was classed as a “school production”, it isn’t! It can’t be. Surely not! Surely it’s a professional production that's snuck in and taken the space meant for students. Surely it’s a lie! One audience member was even heard to ask about the soundtrack and what a nice recording it was… Until it was pointed out to her that these kids were all singing live… that this was a live orchestra! She had also thought it a lie… that it couldn’t possibly be this good!

Well… it was this good! And there ís something quite extraordinary going on at Scotch and amongst these performers that you would do well to take every opportunity to experience!!” (Michael Mills, Heaps Good Theatre)

We are very proud of what our students and production team have achieved and are now looking forward to our 2014 Scotch College Musical.
