Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents

One of the greatest musicals ever written.  Bernstein, Sondheim, Robbins, Shakespeare.  And even if you've seen West Side Story before, you haven't seen it like this.

Somewhere, Cool, Tonight, America, Maria, A Boy Like That, Office Krupke, One Hand One Heart, Something's Coming.  Great story, great music, great dance!

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.

Parental Advisory - West Side Story contains adult situations and language.  Not recommended for young children.

DON'T MISS THE LAST SHOW OF THE SEASON!

westsidestory-200x200

West Side Story is the last show of the Marin Summer Theater 2011 season and you won't want to miss it.  Presented on July 28*, 29, 30 and 31, this promises to be a knock-out production that will be talked about for years to come.  The MST company that astonished audiences with Songs For A New World and Once In A Lifetime is aiming even higher in this thrilling, edgy production. 

It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance.  Advance tickets can be purchased on-line or at the San Marin High School Office (from 8am to 3pm, Monday through Friday).  Tickets will be sold at the door beginning at 7:30pm on Friday July 29,  Saturday July 30 and at 1:30 on Sunday July 31, but there is a high likelyhood that some performances will sell out.

Parental Advisory - West Side Story contains adult situations and language.  Not recommended for young children.

* Thursday, July 28 is a Pay What You Will Preview limited to 50 audience members. You can not reserve tickets for the preview.  Only the first 50 audience members in line will be admitted.
