West Side Story
Dramatic Productions presents

6 Oct 2023 to 21 Oct 2023

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 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.


As part of Dramatic Productions Dramatic Difference Program, each show (with the exception of Opening and Closing Nights) will be dedicated to one of twelve local charities.

10% of each ticket purchase is donated to each charity as per their dedicated session.
