ACT Windsor’s West Side Story October 14 To 23, 2022

The ACT (Arts Collective Theatre) community is an annual theatre program which provides training and performance opportunities for multi-ethnic artists of all ages.

This program operates to enhance the cultural and artistic awareness of the community by providing productions that illuminate diversity. It strives to educate, enlighten, and entertain a diverse, multicultural audience by providing exposure to underserved communities.

For 2022, the community production is West Side Story.

“We brought a lot of new young talent to the stage, and we’ve been working hard with them so they can be ready to put on the best show possible,” states Chris Rabideau, ACT Artistic Director.

West Side Story tells the story of young lovers who are caught between prejudice and warring street gangs in one of the most important and powerful musicals of all time.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time.

Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim are widely regarded as among the best ever written

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.

See West Side Story at the Capitol Theatre from October 14 to 23, 2022.
