Inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and JulietWest Side Story takes Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, and places them in the vibrant battleground of New York City’s West Side in the 1950s.  In the midst of the deep-seated rivalry between the Puerto Rican gang, the Sharks, and the white gang, the Jets, Maria and Tony discover that ancient grudges are no match for true love. Their warring factions, however, refuse to back down, and the “rumbles”, romance, and resentment lead to the lovers’ ultimate, tragic conclusion.

With soaring, sophisticated, and diverse melodies, energetic and athletic dance battles, and its remarkably salient social message, West Side Story remains one of musical theatre’s most revolutionary and most loved treasures.

Bernstein’s score for the musical includes ‘Something’s Coming’, ‘Maria’, ‘America’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Jet Song’, ‘I Feel Pretty’, ‘A Boy Like That’, ‘One Hand, One Heart’, ‘Gee, Officer Krupke’, and ’Cool’.

An amateur production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York.
Based on a conception of Jerome Robbins; Book by Arthur Laurents; Music by Leonard Bernstein; Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Original production directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins and produced on Broadway by Robert E Griffith & Harold Prince by arrangement with Roger L Stevens.

Shaken by his father’s mental illness, Dr. Jekyll invents a chemical, HJ7, that he believes can cure people afflicted with debilitating mental illness. He struggles to convince the Board of Governors at the mental hospital to allow him to test the chemical on patients, even though he is set to marry the Chairman’s daughter, Emma. As he and his friend Utterson celebrate his bachelor party at a local club called the Red Rat, Jekyll witnesses an abusive relationship between Spider and Lucy, before retiring to his home and injecting himself with HJ7. Jekyll transforms into Hyde, and proceeds to explore London as his new alter-ego, attacking Lucy before starting a relationship with her, killing the Bishop, Lord Glossop, Archibald, Lady Beaconsfield and Lord Savage. He eventually kills Lucy. At his wedding to Emma, Jekyll and Hyde oscillate between personalities, and in a moment of clarity, Jekyll kills himself by throwing himself on Utterson’s sword.

Including songs “This Is The Moment” “Someone Like You” and “ In His Eyes”
