Yellow Springs High School presents “West Side Story” this weekend and next at the Antioch College Foundry. The romantic tragedy based on “Romeo and Juliet” with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, opens Friday, March 13, at 8 p.m. The shows run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. on March 13–15 and 20–22.

 

The intensely emotional story focuses on two lovers caught between two rival New York City gangs in the 1950s. The show includes 38 Yellow Springs High School students whose characters deal with violent rivalries, overt racial discrimination, poverty and immigrant status of two working class American populations, the newest Puerto Ricans and the more seasoned white ethnic Americans.

Tickets are $10 at the door, $7 for seniors and students.
