Young stars had an eventful time when they performed a musical about gang warfare and forbidden love.

Bolsover Drama Group youth section’s opening night of West Side Story was delayed by a fire alarm going off on Wednesday, June 29.

And the following night, Matt Allen suffered a badly sprained wrist after tumbling off a raised platform.

But in the best tradition, the show went on and played to good audiences at The Bolsover School.

For a review on the show, see the Derbyshire Times, published on Thursday, July 7.
