Somewhere. All is peace and love now for the young actors who starred in last month’s hit production of West Side Story at James Lick Middle School. But the students won’t soon forget the passions they portrayed—when they were Jets, or Sharks, or those caught in between. Playing Tony and Maria in alternating performances Jan. 18–21 were (from left) Noah Zovickian and Natalia Dise, and Madeline Johns and Jackson Paddock. The students sang as part of a 62-member cast directed by visual and performing arts teacher Jake Stookey. Stookey noted that school staff and parents -- including a professional costumer, a set builder, and a vocal coach -- pitched in to help the students create a top-quality production.    Photo by Beverly Tharp
