Chance Theater Presents West Side Story

Chance Theater presents the legendary Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim/Arthur Laurents musical West Side Story like you have never seen it before, with musical direction by Robyn Wallace, choreography by Kelly Todd and directed by Chance Theater’s artistic director Oanh Nguyen. Previews begin on Friday, July 6 and the show will open on Saturday, July 14 at 8pm and continue through Sunday, August 12.

More than fifty years ago, a show about rival gangs in New York City changed musical theater forever. Now, Chance Theater brings a completely re-imagined and unexpected staging to its theater. As powerful and timely today as ever, West Side Story is one of the greatest love stories of all time, filled with such classic Bernstein/Sondheim songs like “Tonight,” “America,” “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”

This July, Chance Theater will take a fresh, contemporary look at this timeless exploration of ethnic tensions and youthful passion, giving new impact and energy to the story that has captured audiences hearts and imaginations for decades in a thrilling new production that is sure to be the most talked about musical event of the Summer!

The cast features Keaton Williams as Tony, Gina Velez as Maria, Gasper Spino as Riff, and Chelsea Baldree as Anita, along with Robert Wallace (Bernardo), Brian Alexander (Action), Eric Ronquillo (A-rab), Eric Michael Parker (Baby John), Jackson Tobiska (Diesel), Kellie Spill (Velma), Dannielle Green (Graziella), Tasha Tormey (Minnie), Nikki Miller (Clarice), Amanda Sylvia (Anybodys), Israel Cortez (Chino), Anthony Obnial (Pepe), Alex Uriostegu (Indio), Danny Marin (Luis),  Elena Murray (Rosalia, Rebecca Fondiler (Shark Girl), Makenzie Gomez (Shark Girl), Frank Minano (Doc), Michael Grenie (Lt. Schrank), Joe Buford (Officer Krupke), and Patrick Birman (Glad Hand).
