West Side Story

West Side Story

Hailed as the greatest Broadway musical of all time, the genius of West Side Story’s creators is unquestionable. The remarkable collaboration between Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins produced a timeless masterpiece.

This tragic love story tells the tale of two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle. The “Jets”, sons of previous immigrants to America, battle the new arrivals from Puerto Rico – the “Sharks” – for domination of the streets.

Director Joey McKneely’s vibrant new staging features some of Australia’s most exciting young talent performing Jerome Robbins’ original ground-breaking choreography.

The ideal fusion of dance, music, and theatre; experience this internationally celebrated production of West Side Story for a limited season only.

See the full Australian cast featuring new talent and seasoned performers and meet the Jets.
