This classical and enduring musical — called by many the greatest American musical ever written — will open this summer at the beautiful El Cerrito High Performing Arts Center. YMTC is producing this show the way we think it ought to be done: with teenagers, who are at the heart of this story, played by teenagers, and the adults who surround their lives, played by adults.
We at YMTC are thrilled to bring this profoundly moving story, based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet about the power of love between two teenagers in an atmosphere of racism, hate and violence — to our loyal audiences and newcomers alike.
West Side Story — featuring a stellar cast of young performing artists led by Joshua Herman as Tony, Sophia Sinsheimer as Maria, Marnina Wirtshafter as Anita, Andrew Humann as Riff, and Jaron Liclican as Bernardo — will open July 13th, 2012 and run for 6 performances only.
July 13, 14, 20th, and 21st at 7:30 pm and July 15th and 22nd at 2pm.
