COCA SUMMER MUSICAL
One of the greatest shows of the American musical theatre canon; not to be missed!
West Side Story sets Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in 1950s New York City as the two star-crossed young lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs. From the first notes to the final breath, their struggle to survive in a world of violence and prejudice remains one of the most memorable and powerful musical dramas of our time. Book by Arthur Laurents. Music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Entire original production directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. (2 hours, plus intermission)
With choreography from COCA alum Christopher Page-Sanders, musical direction by Ron McGowan, and under the direction of Jim Butz, the COCA Summer Musical showcases St. Louis’ most talented “triple threat” performers.
Recommended for ages 9 and up due to length and adult content, including language, violence and implied sexual situations.
