Following the success of Fiddler on the Roof, director Steve Tearle, and NE Theatre York, return with a new production of the world-famous West Side Story, bringing his unique vision to this beloved musical like you’ve never seen before.

Set in the heart of New York City, the story follows the intense rivalry between two teenage street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Echoing the tragic romance of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden love blossoms between a boy from the Jets and a girl whose brother is a Shark, setting the stage for an unforgettable tale that is fated from the start.

West Side Story is a musical which features a collection of iconic songs, including “Maria,” “Somewhere,” “America,” “Something’s Coming,” and “I Feel Pretty.”

This innovative production by the award-winning NE Theatre is predominantly in black and white, with select moments bursting into full colour, creating a striking and unforgettable visual experience. The talented cast brings the story to life with Rebecca Jackson starring as Maria, Finley Butler as Tony, Kit Stroud as Riff, while Maia Beatrice plays Anita and Kristian Barley as Bernardo. Alongside these standout leads, the ensemble of Jets and Sharks showcases the remarkable talent of the company, contributing to another truly unforgettable production.

Don’t miss this extraordinary night at the theatre—it’s an experience you’ll never forget.
