Five KWU Students Cast in SCT Production of 'West Side Story'
2015 Jun 29
Five Kansas Wesleyan University students were cast in the Salina Community Theatre (SCT) production of "West Side Story," with a three-weekend run, June 12-28, 2015. All five students were tapped to portray members of the Puerto Rican street gang called the Sharks. They were Jacobi Blair* as Toro, Jaicee Wilson as Moose, Dania Gonzalez as the female lead Maria, Casadie "Sadie" Smith as Rosalia, and Tina Butts as Lupita. (*Note: Due to other pressing demands on his time, Jacobi Blair was forced to withdraw from the musical. However, he was deeply honored to be included among the five KWU students selected during tryouts and given a part in this SCT production.)
