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 great family event. It was good youth production, and I have to admit that the stand out character for me was the cowardly lion! I attended the preview show and still enjoyed it. In regards to what could have made the play just a little better would have been the use of some needed sound effects....but, it was a fun show overall! Some of the lines actually stuck with my boyfriend and I and we now reference them on occasion! It's worth going to see, with friends your own age, or with little ones.
The bold and innovative CYC Theatre proudly presents The Wiz! Come see all of your favorite characters — Dorothy, The Lion, The Tin-Man and The Scarecrow — in this hip and funky retelling of L. Frank Baum's classic tale. Set to an urban sound, this toe-tapping musical won seven Tony Awards on Broadway, and has entertained Oz fans the world over since the 1970s. This production features a live, professional band and stars local teen talent and adult professionals, including local celebrity "Big Willie-G" from the CW Network! Opening Night patrons are envited to a free, after-show reception with food, dessert and champagne! Directed by Shaun T. Evans.
