With school back in session, Broadway.com has scoured YouTube for its Top 5 high school musical performances.
Among the “A+” shows is Staples Players’ 2011 production of “West Side Story.”
The website says:
In a high school musical, finding a bunch of guys willing to even try on a pair of jazz shoes is a rarity. But bafflingly, Staples High School in Westport, CT has assembled a whole team of hoofing high school dudes who pirouette and leap around the stage with ease. Wow, check out those Shark high-kicks!
Very cool — except for the “bafflingly” part.
At Staples, “hoofing high school dudes” are everywhere.
