About the Event
Under the guidance of its regular team of Director; Kevin Kennedy, Musical Director; Philip Kennedy, and Choreographer; Claire Kickham, SMTMS proudly presents its 12th annual production, and New Ross premiere; West Side Story.
With score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story is widely regarded as among the best ever written and one of theatre's finest accomplishments.
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.
