West Side Story

Presented by The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC

This summer, The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC will be presenting West Side Story through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.
 
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
 
The mission of the Performing Arts School at bergenPAC is to provide high quality training in the theater arts while also offering training in life skills such as public speaking, improved focus, social skills, self-confidence and team building with unique and "hands-on" training by industry professionals that allow them to gain real world experience.
