West Side Story
by Georgetown Palace Theatre

Feb. 17 - Mar. 26, 2017

Something’s coming, something good!  Yes!  One of the world’s great musical love stories – West Side Story – opens live at Georgetown’s Historic Palace Theatre on February 17 to run for 5 weekends.  

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is powerful, poignant, and timely as ever, exploring the rivalry between two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds – the Jets and the Sharks. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written, with songs such as “Maria,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere.”  

The Book for West Side Story, written by Arthur Laurents (based on a concept by Jerome Robbins), with its search for love and meaning amidst the backdrop of race and identity, will move you as it has moved audiences for nearly 60 years. 

The 1961 movie of West Side Story, a romantic musical update of 'Romeo and Juliet', won ten Oscars.

Directing the Palace production of West Side Story is Ron Watson, who performs many important jobs for the Palace under the title of Technical Director and IT Administrator and uses his directing expertise for several productions each season.  

Jesee Smart, Choreographer for West Side Story, is originally from Chicago IL.  Jesee can be seen onstage and off around the Palace, performing, choreographing, and teaching. 

Music Director Rose Yurcina has been seen on stage at the Palace, but this is her first appearance as Music Director.  

Sabrina Mari Uriegas has the coveted role of Maria; Nicolas Garza and Matt Buzonas share the exciting role of Tony; Leslie Gaar is ecstatic to play the life-long dream role of Anita; Scott Garrett Graham is fulfilling a life goal with the part of Riff; and Ismael Soto III, a talented performer and theatre educator who recently made his Zilker debut, has the coveted role of Bernardo. And so many more fine actors bring West Side Story to life on the Palace stage!



Suggested rating: PG-13 for stylized violence, language, and sensuality.
