West Side Story

WSS_logo_CMYK_verticalTown Theatre opens its centennial season with the classic production West Side Story – one of the most powerful love stories of all time. Beautiful melodies like “Tonight,” “Maria” and “Somewhere” are juxtaposed with fierce and fiery dancing in “America” and The Dance at the Gym. Town’s production coincides with the 100th birthday of Jerome Robbins, director/choreographer of the original Broadway production of the show.

Taking on the roles of our star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria are Jeremy Reasoner (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Million Dollar Quartet) and Kerri Roberts (Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady). Karly Minacapelli (Miss Saigon) is the fiery Anita with Town newcomer John Reed in the role of Bernardo. Alex Cowsert (Hairspray, Million Dollar Quartet) plays Tony’s loyal brother Riff with Jacob Calder (Beauty and the Beast, Big Fish) in the role of Chino. Town is honored to have David Swicegood direct the show on the 20-year anniversary of his serving as director for the 1998 production.
