Her Big Chance tells the funny story of Lesley, an aspiring actress who
is offered what she believes to be her big break in a new film for the
West German market. Hearing her story, we start to glimpse her naivety,
and realise that this isn't perhaps the shortcut to the big time she
expected it to be!
Also presented is 'This is Me,' by Diane Samuels

Bishopsgate Institute presents
WEST SIDE STORY
Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard
The Great Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH
From 26th June until 1st July 2018
West Side Story is set on the streets of New York’s Upper West Side and explores
the rivalry between two gangs, The Jets and The Sharks. Amidst all the gang
warfare, Tony from The Jets falls in love with Maria, who is the sister of the
leader of The Sharks. The dark themes, sophisticated music score and electric
writing bring the story of Romeo and Juliet into the 20th century.
The Bishopsgate Institute production of West Side Story with full orchestra will
be performed to celebrate the centennials of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, who
composed West Side Story, and of Jerome Robbins, who directed and choreographed
the original production. This high-quality amateur production is presented by
arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) and ties in seamlessly
with themes highlighted in Bishopsgate Institute’s special collections and
archives which contain images and materials exploring cultural tensions and
post-war daily urban life in both New York and London. The piece is based on a
conception of Jerome Robbins, with music written by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics
written by Stephen Sondheim.
This production is under amateur licence and the actors will be amateurs, but
the creative team and the orchestra are multi-award nominated professionals who
have been invited to ensure the highest quality of experience for the cast and
audience, in line with Bishopsgate Institute’s philosophy. The production will
be directed by Toby Hine and choreographed by Lemington Ridley, with the Musical
Director to be announced. The show will be produced by Francesca Canty for
This production will be set in the stunning 120-year-old Great Hall at
Bishopsgate Institute, performed in the round with limited cabaret seating.
Providing a rare opportunity to experience the show with a full 29-piece
orchestration, played by the best up-and-coming professional musicians in an
extraordinary setting, this will be an up close and personal performance as the
streets of New York take over the Great Hall, with cast members weaving in and
out of the audience as the show goes on.
Casting announcements and further details coming soon.
