WEST SIDE STORY

WEST SIDE STORY

A HATY Productions Musical

Celebrate the greatest love story of all time. Risk everything for true love.

Young lovers are caught between prejudice and warring street gangs in this seminal retelling of Romeo and Juliet.


From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.


Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.


Don't miss this 35 strong cast of some of Halifax's finest young performers as they soar to the heights of simply put - the finest ever written masterpiece of all time.


An amateur production presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe www.MTIShows.co.uk
