West Side Story
20th - 23rd February 2019Back
In February 2019 the multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway musical that is West Side Story will hit the Kingswood Theatre with Zenith Youth Theatre Company’s 50 strong cast who’ll be taking on all the classics with emotionally-charged favourites like Maria, Tonight, America and I Feel Pretty. The entire company and audience will fall into the whirling, finger-snapping world of mambo, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz, telling a love story that’s unmatched in intensity.
The tale of star-crossed lovers riffs on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, except this 60-year-old production – which The Times called ‘Broadway’s greatest dance musical’ – is set in the darker reaches of 1950s New York, where a relationship is forced apart by a vicious rivalry between two street gangs: the Jets and the Sharks, whose arrival from Puerto Rico threatens to upset the hierarchy in the area. In the sweltering New York summer that’s heated as much by the gang rivalry as by the weather, a forbidden romance quickly develops.
