Synopsis

West Side Story, winner of 10 Academy Awards, takes place in the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City in the 1960’s where gang turf wars rage between the ethnically diverse Jets and the Sharks. Taken from the classic Romeo and Juliet, this dramatic musical weaves the tale of two lovers who cross battle lines to defy stereotypes and overcome prejudice and hatred. Beautifully crafted songs, dazzling dance numbers, choreographed fight scenes and witty dialogue masterfully guide the audience through the classic tale of forbidden love. A rival just may be the one to teach us how to love.

Directed by Lisa Rettiger
