Males between the ages of 16 - 30 who are interested in auditioning should contact company secretary Hilary on 0121 550 3667 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The world's greatest love story takes to the streets as Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, where 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 and features some of musical theatre's most loved songs, including: Somewhere, Maria, America, Tonight and I Feel Pretty.
West Side Story is choreographed by Steve Elias, who is most noted for his work in BBC 2's Our Dancing Town, but also has a celebrated career as a West End performer and choreographer.
Tickets for West Side Story from 27th Nov - 1st Dec 2018 are now on sale by visiting the Grand Theatre in person, calling 01902 429212 or online at www.grandtheatre.co.uk.
