"West Side Story created an immediate sensation when it debut-ed on Broadway in 1957; never before had a musical addressed contemporary social issues — including gang violence, juvenile delinquency, and racial prejudice — with such visceral emotional honesty. Though much has changed since that time, political divisiveness, generational conflict, and racial intolerance remain harmful forces. Thus, West Side Story, so highly regarded for its catchy songs, its stunning dances, its striking themes, and its stylized yet truthful depiction of love and hate, continues to be relevant to audiences today. Bigotry is the poison that turns the Jets and Sharks against each other, and tragically, it is only brought to an end through death; we can preempt these destructive consequences in our society, our nation, and our world by working to recognize, address, and overcome prejudice."
Come out and support these amazing Cadets for all of the hard work they have put in to this show!
