The Creation of West Side Story

The MCJC Let’s Have Fun Together Committee is pleased to announce that Charles Troy will present his highly acclaimed “The Creation of West Side Story” show at MCJC on Sunday, March 10 at 1:30 pm.

This 90 minute multimedia show was a huge entertainment success, receiving a standing ovation, this past summer at the Woodstock Opera House.  It’s a show you won’t want to miss! Plan to bring your family and friends to share this delightful and informative entertainment experience. Free child care is available if needed.

Charles Troy is America’s most celebrated dramatic musical theater historian/storyteller. He has developed more than fifty multimedia shows on musical theater subjects. His presentations are informative, highly entertaining, and have been embraced by audiences nationwide.

Mr. Troy is based in Chicago and performs extensively in Chicago North Shore communities and appears on a monthly basis at the Skokie Theater. He has been featured twice on the front page of the Arts & Entertainment section of the Chicago Tribune. The late Roy Leonard, former theater critic for WGN-TV, wrote in his blog in 2014, “I first saw Charles Troy a few months back at the Skokie Theater and have been back three times since, learning things I never knew about Broadway musicals I’ve enjoyed for years.”
