Production Description

Casting "West Side Story." Director states: "This a really ambitious production and we are going to need the help of the entire community to get this project off the ground! A production of this size makes it easy for everyone to participate. We are excited to announce that this semester we will be putting on a production of 'West Side Story' the Musical! Originally performed in 1957 'West Side Story' is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s 'Romeo and Juliet' set in New York City. This is the story of two young idealistic lovers who find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. We watch them as they sing and dance their way through dealing with issues of race, identity, prejudice, violence, labor, poverty, sexuality, grief, loss and even gentrification!"
