West Side Story, if you're not familiar with it follows the story of two lovers Maria & Tony who are separated by the gangs the Jets and the Sharks. Although set in the Upper West side of New York City in the 1950's era, this play is still relevant, enjoyable and very entertaining to watch. Most know how the tragic story of Romeo & Juliet goes, the feud of two families and love being what hopes to bring them back together. Unlike Romeo & Juliet, the musical revolves around street gangs and the violent matters that entail from this. For Tony & Maria, they hope to change the feud and not lose hope in a violent and prejudiced world.
St Bede's college promises to bring an innovative, heart-warming and tragic rendition of the play in their own unique way.They have had 46 rehearsals over 22 weeks to make sure you will enjoy their performance. The college encourages students in the excellence of art and performance as they believe it brings a valuable message to not only the students themselves, but their audience as well.
Performances run for 4 nights starting at 7:30pm every time. Tickets are $25 for an adult and $20 for concession or you are able to bring the family along (2 Adults, 2 Children) for $80. Tickets can be booked through this link. The performance will be displayed at St Bede's College Auditorium on 2 Mentone Parade, Mentone.
