  MU Alum, Andrew Purcell ('12) will be appearing as Diesel in the International Tour of West Side Story.  In addition to playing Diesel, Andrew will be understudying the iconic role of Riff, leader of the Jets. The original Jerome Robbins choreography will be recreated by Broadway choreographer, Joey McKneely.

The relationship Andrew built with casting director, Stuart Howard, as a direct result of our annual New York Showcase trip led to this exciting opportunity.  Andrew recently completed a contract as a principal singer/dancer on Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America where he toured the Hawaiian Islands.  He is represented by the Judy Boals agency in New York City.  Congratulations to Andrew!!!
