WEST SIDE STORY
Mason High School Auditorium
May 26-28, 2017
Set in 1950s New York City, West Side Story, is a modern take on Shakespeare’s classic love story Romeo and Juliet. Two young idealistic lovers from opposing gangs and different cultures find themselves caught in the middle of a gang war. In a place and time where most are struggling for economic survival, the “American” Jets see their territory and jobs being taken by Puerto Rican immigrants. The newly immigrated “Sharks” feel the sting of rejection and suspicion for being outsiders. As tensions escalate, the couple hopes their love can overcome all obstacles and be a bridge to bring the two gangs and cultures together before violence creates an even bigger divide.

With award winning story, lyrics and music, West Side Story is a memorable and tragic look at 1950s New York City but its landmark story and message are still as relevant today as the day they were written. From the worst of human emotions to our best, West Side Story shows the struggle for love and compassion to overcome prejudice and ignorance.
