Students from Briarwood Christian School recently took to the stage to perform the classic musical, “West Side Story,” under the direction of Mrs. Lee Eady.  “It’s a rather large and difficult production but the kids like to be challenged,” says Eady. “I also like that there is a great lesson the kids and audience can learn. The underlying theme is about prejudice, and it really gets you to ask yourself some thought provoking questions. Of course, it’s also a fabulous love story!” 46 students were involved in the production on stage, with 20 more working behind the scenes.  A live, full orchestra provided the score.  Senior, Cole Jackson and Sophomore, Halle Beasley played the main roles Tony and Maria during three nights of performances. †
