Staples Players is proud to produce “West Side Story” in the mainstage theatre at Staples High School in Westport, CT. Performances will be at 7:30 pm on November 11th, 12th, 17th, 18th and 19th and at 2pm on November 13th.
“West Side Story” is set on the streets of New York City in 1958, where two rival gangs, The Jets and The Sharks, (Montagues and Capulets) fight over their turf. Tony, who founded the Jets, sees Maria at a dance attended by both gangs and they fall in love at first sight. But, Maria’s older brother Bernardo is the leader of The Sharks, which, as in Romeo and Juliet foretells this love to end in tragedy.
