Free-Rain Theatre Company presents
West Side Story

8 Feb 2013 to 24 Feb 2013

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.
Highlighting the talents of a young ensemble cast, WEST SIDE STORY has found popularity in schools as well as professional theatres throughout the world. Its exciting and sophisticated score by Bernstein and Sondheim is often considered Broadway's finest and its songs form part of the nation's musical heritage. As originally staged by the legendary Jerome Robbins, the show is an impressive showcase for accomplished dancers. And with a reduced orchestration and transpositions on demand, this masterpiece is easier to mount than ever before!
