West Side Story

Tue 30 Sep 2014

Something’s coming....

Following their recent highly acclaimed productions of Grease, Les Miserablés and Miss Saigon, Brighton Theatre Group Youth now bring Leonard Bernstein’s stunning West Side Story to Brighton Dome.

On the mean streets of New York two groups are in a long-lasting duel. The Sharks from Puerto Rica grapple with the difficulties of fitting into American society. Meanwhile The Jets, the 'all american' gang, want to stop newcomers coming into their territory. In the midst of all this, a Jet, Tony, falls in love with a beautiful Shark girl, Maria, with truly tragic consequences.

With incredible music and spectacular dancing throughout, including show stopping numbers such as I Feel Pretty, America, Maria and Somewhere, West Side Story is sure to bring a tear to your eye as you marvel at the talent of some of the most talented young people on the South coast in this heart-breaking retelling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo & Juliet.
