Just Announced – Tyne Theatre Productions present: West Side Story
After the huge success of previous productions The Pirates of Penzance, Sweeney Todd, Oklahoma! and Little Shop of Horrors, we are thrilled to announce that Tyne Theatre Productions will return in September 2017 with one of the most memorable musicals of all time, West Side Story!
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican 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. The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments.
September 2017 is the 150th Anniversary of the theatre, and funds raised from this performance will contribute to the preservation and future restoration of the Grade 1 listed Victorian Opera House.
Tickets: £16 full price, £14 concessions, £10 limited view.Back to News
