West Side Story, one of the many classic musicals of that era, is set in the area West Side Of New York City. Inspired by Shakespeares' Romeo and Juliet, it tells the story of New York rival street gangs the Jets and the Sharks. The story evolves when Tony, a member of the Jets falls in love with Maria the sister of the leader of the Sharks. There are many timeless classics in the musical score with songs such as "Maria", "America", "Somewhere"and "I Feel Pretty" to name but a few.
This is the second time that the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club have been associated with the Footlights Youth Theatre Group, last year the Teatro sold out in advance, for the performance of Cats the Musical. All profits from this performance will be donated by the Lions to Reach Out in Torrevieja who provide an excellent support facility for the needy and homeless people of Torrevieja. Tickets will sell quickly for this "one night only" performance in Torrevieja so book your tickets now, and come along on Saturday 22nd February to see a fabulous show.
