West Side Story

Bishopsgate Institute presents


The Great Hall
26 June – 1 July 2018

The Bishopsgate Institute production of West Side Story will be set in our stunning 120-year-old Great Hall, performed in traverse with limited cabaret seating. Providing a rare opportunity to experience the show with a full 28-piece orchestration, played by top West End musicians in an extraordinary setting, this will be an up close and personal performance as the streets of New York take over the Great Hall. With cast members weaving in and out of the audience as the show goes on, expect to see the Sharks and Jets up close and feel a part of the action.


This is not a traditional staging of West Side Story. If you choose cabaret seating or select seats in the front row or aisles of the tiered seating sections, the performance will unfold all around you, and for the safety of our performers,  belongings must be placed in the cloakroom for safe keeping. Please note your musical experience will be particularly powerful in seats marked closest the orchestra. 

Please see the seating guide below for reference before booking your seats.
