From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and powerful, poignant, and timely love stories in American musical theatre. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to 1950s New York City as two young, idealistic lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves caught between warring street gangs. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

A Note about Ticketing
As we tentatively make our plans to reintroduce indoor live productions in 2021, we ask for your kindness and understanding when it comes to seating. Initially, we will only be offering 50% of our seating until we learn that it is safe enough to open more seats. This allows us to assign and block off seats for social distancing. This will be labor-intensive and not perfect. If you wish to sit together in your “bubble” of seats, please order all tickets at the same time as we will not be able to combine “bubble” groups later. You will not be selecting your seats online as we will be manually assigning them in the order that the tickets are purchased. Again, we ask for your support as we work through this tricky situation.
Masks will be required at all times, and we reserve the right to ask you to leave if you’re putting others at risk.
Ticket prices remain the same at $12.00 general admission and $16.00 reserved for the Main Stage and $15.00 for all seating in the Studio. There is a $2.00 upcharge for tickets purchased at the window. We cannot guarantee seating for walk-ins and will handle those on a case-by-case basis.
