Ulladulla High School have established a reputation for presenting high quality musical productions throughout the past number of years as they prepare for their 2017 musical.

In his final year at the school, Simon Grace and his talented team have decided to set the bar high and are mounting a production of the all-time classic, West Side Story.

I am hoping that musicians in our community will support us as they have in the past and get involved in the production.

The piece presents huge challenges for a high school production but with an outstanding cast already in rehearsal, all students are very excited at the chance to showcase such and dynamic and difficult piece.

Some of the biggest challenges are in the area of music said music director Simon Grace.

“We have some excellent musicians in the school and we will be featuring them in the orchestra but the scope and difficulty of the writing means that we will need some help,” he said.

Ulladulla High School is looking for anyone interested in joining the orchestra, particularly the wind, brass and keyboard areas.

The ability to read music is a desired advantage.

It is a chance to play classic pieces from a great show in our own community.

Anyone interested should call Ulladulla High School on 4455 1799 and ask to speak to Mr Grace.
