West Side Story


West-Side-Story-UoP-for-Website-780x468.jpg

It’s one of the most memorable musical of all time — West Side Story tears up the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth stage between Thursday 8th and Saturday 10th March 2018.

Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant, and timely as ever, and the score, by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, is one of the best ever written.

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 Jets and the 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.

This is a community hire event. Row G may be restricted due to the conductor having to stand during the show’s musical numbers.

Ticket prices start at £11. Performance times are as follows:

  • Thursday 8th March 2018: 7:30pm
  • Friday 9th March 2018: 7:30pm
  • Saturday 10th March 2018: 2:30pm
  • Saturday 10th March 2018: 7:30pm
