I spent part of my Friday night last week on the balcony of Kaneland High School's auditorium during an opening night performance of "West Side Story." While the school's orchestra played the familiar music, I half wanted to sit back and enjoy the show instead of taking photos.
I've always loved musicals, and "West Side Story" is on my list of favorites. It joins "The Sound of Music," "Peter Pan," "Mary Poppins," "Wicked" – I could go on forever.
I'll get a chance to test my musical knowledge Saturday for the annual Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley Trivia Bee at the Q Center in St. Charles. The Kane County Chronicle will have two teams of three competing. Wish us luck!
