7pm, Saturday 11th July
In this modern retelling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, inspired by West Side Story, we experience a musical tale rooted in the conflict between two East London Schools which is complicated by the budding romance of two star crossed lovers.
We are pleased to be producing East Side Story in collaboration with Pilot Theatre Company who have developed an online strategy and digital resources. Pilot Theatre are a National Portfolio Organisation specialising in work for, by and with young people.
Young and Talented gratefully acknowledge the support from the Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts for funding this production as part of our East London youth participation project. Grants for the Arts is funded by the National Lottery and provide for activities carried out over a set period, which engage people in England in Arts activities and help artists and Arts organisations in England to carry out their work.
