Mill Mountain Theatre participates in the global celebration of composer Leonard Bernstein’s centennial with their production of “West Side Story” running October 3rd through the 21st on the Trinkle MainStage.
Led by Producing Artistic Director: Ginger Poole (Director) ?Broadway’s Nick Kepley (Choreographer), and Seth Davis (Resident Music Director), the production features twenty-seven performers hailing from New York City to Roanoke.
Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this classic follows warring families of teenaged gangs and star-crossed lovers, desperate for somewhere to be together forever. The romantic and violent story is told through choreography based on the Jerome Robbins original Tony Award-winning dances, with the music of Leonard Bernstein and the words of then beginner Stephen Sondheim. Since its Broadway debut 60 years ago, it has remained a shining example of the best of this truly American art form.
“West Side Story” runs Oct 3 – 21 on the Trinkle MainStage at Mill Mountain Theatre. Be sure to grab your tickets at millmountain.org or call 540-342-5740.
