Next Generation Theatre Company Presents: 

WEST SIDE STORY

westsidestory

Aug 19 – 7:00 p.m.    Aug 20 – 2:00 p.m.    Aug 20 – 7:00 p.m.    
Aug 26 – 7:00 p.m.    Aug 27 – 2:00 p.m.    Aug 27 – 7:00 p.m.

Pulled directly from the pages of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the musical takes place on New York's West Side in the mid-1950s amidst widespread racial and social tension. The show begins as a war is building between two rival gangs fighting over the same piece of turf: born and bred New York boys, The Jets, and Puerto Rican immigrants The Sharks. In the midst of the battlefield are two young romantics, good-boy Tony, a Jet ready to leave the gang life behind, and wide-eyed Maria, the sister of Sharks leader, Bernardo. When Tony and Maria unexpectedly meet and fall for one another, tension between the rival groups only escalates, leading to a bloody and senseless rumble that costs both sides young lives. In spite of the violence, the true story at the core of the show is two lovers trying to find a way to be together—and whether either can survive when hate and ignorance are unwilling to yield.

ADMISSION:  $15.00 Adult in Advance; $18.00 Adult at the Door; $12.00 Students; $10.00 Children 12 & under

Oct 7 – 7:30 p.m.       Oct 8 – 7:30 p.m.    Oct 9 – 2:00 p.m.

Winner of the 1969 Tony award for best musical! 1776 makes history come alive! It’s the summer of 1776 and the time is right to declare independence...if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Richard Henry Lee as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy. 1776 is a funny, insightful, and compelling drama with a striking score that puts human faces on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons.
