We went West

Last weekend some of the Pointed Toes Team went and saw West Side Story at Sydney's Lyric Theatre.
We caught all the action and drama from the all Australian cast and danced in our third row seats to the famous songs "Maria" and "America" that were played by the amazing 18 piece orchestra.
We recommend if you get the chance to go and see this great production and you wont be disappointed.
