Wakefield Youth Music Theatre return to the stage with the smash hit musical West Side Story.

Jam packed with vibrant songs and dance routines including America, Tonight, Maria and I Feel Pretty, West Side Story is still an audience favourite after more than six decades.

Set in 1950’s New York, this new production features dazzling costumes alongside flawless musical arrangements.

Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, West Side Story explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The story follows Tony and Maria, two young lovers from opposite sides of the street war.

West Side Story first opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway in September 1957 to rave reviews and has continued to delight audiences ever since.

Don’t miss the stars of tomorrow in this exciting new production!
