Cast Announced for SHS Production of West Side Story

Something’s Coming! Scottsbluff High School will be performing West Side Story April 2-4, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium.

The story by Arthur Laurents was created as a modern take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.  This classic musical, composed by the legendary Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim was first performed on Broadway in 1957, and was nominated for the Best Musical at the Tony awards.  It was then adapted into a screen production in 1961, where it won ten Academy awards, including picture of the year. 

The show features two rival gangs: The Jets vs. the Sharks. With tension already rising between these two groups, a wrench is thrown into the mix when Tony (Kennedy Ronne) and Maria (Anna Harveson) meet at a dance and the sparks are instantaneous.  With Tony being a well-respected Jet and Maria the younger sister of the Sharks’ leader, Bernardo (Adam Polk), conflict sparks when they are caught in the middle of their kiss. Soon after this Riff (Billy Mosher) challenges Bernardo to a rumble between the two gangs, and the violence of the feud wreaks havoc in the streets of New York.

There is an exciting revival of West Story Story opening on Broadway in New York City next month. Forty-eight students of the Scottsbluff cast and crew that will be travelling to New York to see the production and have a rehearsal with someone from the Broadway production. (For a sneak peek at rehearsals, visit the Scottsbluff High School Musical Theatre Productions Facebook page.)

Tickets will be available online at www.ronne.com beginning March 1 for a discounted price of $11. Tickets will go to the full price of $13 on April 1.
