Year 9 Performing Arts

Watch West Side Story and make notes on the story and characters.

The film is on Netflix or an ameteur version can be found at


Log into your Initial Research and Analysis document (purple for actors, yellow for musical theatre) on google drive. You will find this in your classroom folder.


Start to research the answers to the questions on the West Side Story slides just as you did for We Will Rock You.

This should take you two hours over the next couple of weeks. Answer the same boxes as you did for We Will Rock You. Answers must be based on the 1961 film.
