West Side Story Rehearsal

WEST SIDE STORY

School Version

Book by ARTHUR LAURENTS
Music by LEONARD BERNSTEIN
Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM

A musical in which a modern day Romeo an Juliet are involved in New York street gangs. On the harsh streets of the upper west side, two gangs battle for control of the turf. The situation becomes complicated when a gang member falls in love with a rival's sister.

With a reputation of being one of the most well-loved musicals of our generation, Prairie Spirit School Division and Candlewick are excited to present it in their ongoing list of spring musicals. With a cast and crew of over 60 people, the production boasts a cast and crew of students from across southern Manitoba and a fantastic leadership team of adult volunteers.
