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

Story line was very interesting. Set design was excellent. Costumes gave insight into each character's personality. Performers were fine actors. However, we have the same remark for Miles Anderson, who played Leonardo, in every production (3) we have seen him in, his diction is great but his voice does not project very far beyond the footlights, especially upstairs where we were sitting last night. Much of his dialog is lost and increasing his volume does not help (he shouted in an effort to project which made it even more difficult to understand), it is a placement problem with his voice. The scratchiness to his is not a problem, just the lack of projecting. After 3 tries we will after to forego any future productions in which he performs. It is a shame because his acting abilities are excellent and there are exercises to correct the problem.
