Summary "The 1957 classic American musical West Side Story has been staged by countless community and school theater groups, but none more ambitiously than the 2000 production by MacMurray College, a small school in Jacksonville, Illinois. Diane Brewer, the new drama head at the college, determined to add an extra element to the usual demands of putting on a show by having deaf students perform half of the parts. Deaf Side Story presents a fascinating narrative of Brewer and the cast's efforts to mount this challenging play."--BOOK JACKET
