West Side Theatre Company Opens Its Exciting 2018-19 Season

By Tyler Hinton
On the heels of its sold-out production of the Broadway-bound "Pride & Prejudice - The Musical," West Side Theatre Company ( opened its exciting second season in April with an impressive and moving original concert, "The Struggle Is Real." The remainder of the 2018-19 season will include J.M. Barrie's classic play, "Peter Pan"; the Tony-winning comedy "The 39 Steps"; the new musical with songs by Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern, "Rilla of Green Gables"; and the Gilbert and Sullivan favorite, "Pirates of Penzance."

"We've got an amazing lineup," said Hannah Farr, a founding member of the theatre's board of directors. "Here is to wonderful, whimsical, hilarious, and poignant storytelling to come!"

West Side Theatre Company will present "Peter Pan" from Aug. 3-6. Bring your entire family to visit Neverland, where children never grow up and adults learn all over again how to believe. Discover a magical world filled with imagination, as the beloved story is told in exciting, unexpected ways!

Next up is "The 39 Steps," from Nov. 2-5. Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and over 150 zany characters (played by a cast of four), and you have a riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft.

See "Rilla of Green Gables," with music by renowned composers Berlin and Kern, from Mar. 22-25, 2019. As her sweetheart and brother leave to fight in World War I, Anne of Green Gable's daughter, Rilla, embarks on her own emotional journey at home, changing her life forever.

Last but not least is "Pirates of Penzance," from June 28-July 1, 2019. Filled to the brim with absurd hilarity - and a dash of sweeping romance, the mile-a-minute wit and splendid score make this a musical comedy that you won't want to miss.

West Side Theatre Company has received rave reviews from audience members. Following is a sampling of their comments:
