Harlingen Theatre Spotlights Local Talent on Center Stage
HARLINGEN – Community theaters are a great place to showcase the Rio Grande Valley’s theatrical talent and have seen a rise in popularity.
The Harlingen Community Theatre just wrapped up a run on the famous, "West Side Story," a musical play about two rival teenage gangs and a forbidden love story that takes place in the 1950’s in New York City.
The play director, Randi Lappin, says it’s a difficult production to put together because of the heavy amount of choreography.
“Most of these guys are not dancers, so they have really worked hard,” she said.
Rick Diaz spoke with some of the cast and crew who expressed their gratitude for the theater and what they’ve learned.
