West Side Story is dancing down to EPAC!

July 19 – August 4

Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Entire Original Production Directed and Choreographed by Jerome Robbins

1958 Best Musical Tony Nominee
Recommended for Teen and Adult Audiences

West Side Story is an epic fan-favorite musical written by Arthur Laurents with music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and concept and choreography by Jerome Robbins. Teen rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, face more than turf wars in 1950s New York. They must confront the racism between whites and Puerto Ricans that tears them – and the city – apart.

TV Commercial

Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden romance buds between a boy and girl from the different gangs. Can their colorblind love overcome the racial tensions and mend the feud? The intense choreographed fights, the light comedic slice-of-life, and the heartwarming young love will keep the audience on the edge of their seats and singing into the night.

West Side Story is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by
