Come and join St Patrick's College during its drama performance of West Side Story.

West Side Story is the award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet. The feuding families become two warring New York City gangs - the Jets let by Riff and the Puerto Rican Sharks, led by Bernardo. Their dislike escalates to a point where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. But when Riff's best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo's younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything to stop their love. Maria and Tony begin meeting in secret, planning to run away. Then the Sharks and the Jets plan a rumble under the highway - whoever winds gains control of the streets. Maria sends Tony to stop it, hoping it can end the violence. It goes terribly wrong, and before the lovers know what's happened, tragedy strikes and doesn't stop until the climactic and heartbreaking ending.
