From a talented cast of young actors (all under the age of 18) comes this timeless musical tale of star-crossed romance. A reimagining of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this cherished production tells of the ill-fated love affair between Tony and Maria as it plays out amidst the gang rivalry between the Sharks and the Jets. With lively music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd), this favorite of the stage features such hit songs as "Something's Coming," "Maria," "America" and "I Feel Pretty." Also adapted into an Academy Award-winning feature film, West Side Story remains an unforgettable theatrical experience. Learn More

This was a wonderful production in every way. The acting, the directing, the costumes, scenery, lighting, sound effects & music - all were top notch. I especially enjoyed the fact that it was an MFA production and was so well-done. Professional, intensely creative, meaningful. Two young boys sitting in front of us were mesmerized the entire show. Bravo!
The Skin of Our Teeth
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Sarah Rasmussen
The very underpinnings of American identity are challenged, as a typical family struggles to survive an iceberg, annihilation by coastal flooding, nuclear war and each other.
