West Side Story

The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theater’s finest accomplishments.   Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks.  Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical drama of our time.


Highlighting the talents of a young ensemble, West Side Story has found popularity in schools as well as professional theaters throughout the world.  Its exciting, sophisticated score by Bernstein and Sondheim is often considered Broadway’s finest, its songs part of the nation’s musical heritage.  Musical numbers include:  “Maria”; “America”; “Cool”; “One Hand, One Heart”;       “I Feel Pretty”; “Somewhere”; “Gee, Officer Krupke!”;    “A Boy Like That”; “I Have Love” and “Tonight”.  


Characters are: Tony, Maria, Riff, Anita, Bernardo, Schrank, the Jets gang, the Sharks gang, Consuelo, Rosalia, Francisca, Glad Hand, other chorus members.
