The Sharks and the Jets will rumble again in the Center for the Arts production of "West Side Story."
The school's performance of the classic Broadway musical examining New York street gangs in the 1950s, inspired by Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," will be at 7 p.m. March 22 and 24 and 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. March 29 and 30, according to the school's web site. Ticket are $10 for adults and $7 for students. APS elementary and middle school students will be admitted free to the matinee peformances.
With music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and choreography by Jerome Robbins, the musical explores conflict between white and Puerto Rican youth gangs, tragically counterposed by the haunting love story of Maria and Tony, members of the rival groups. Along with the 1957 original Broadway show, "West Side Story" was an Academy Award-winning movie in 1961 starring Natalie Wood in the role of Maria.
