West Side Story
Could it be, yes it could, something's coming, something good…
York Light Youth
Friday 28 October to Saturday 5 November 2016
Brought to you by York Light Youth, West Side Story is the award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet.
Two warring New York City gangs - the American ‘Jets’, led by Riff, and the Puerto Rican ‘Sharks’, led by Bernardo - replace Shakespeare’s feuding families. Their hatred has reached the point where neither can tolerate the other on account of their cultural differences. When Riff's best friend (and former Jet), Tony, and Bernardo's younger sister, Maria, meet at a dance, they instantly fall in love. Maria and Tony begin meeting in secret, planning to run away. In the meantime the Jets challenge the Sharks to a rumble; whoever wins gains control of the streets. Maria sends Tony to stop it, hoping to end the violence, but her plan goes terribly wrong. After this, can Maria and Tony have the happily-ever-after they have dreamed about?
This fantastic show will be performed by the talented young cast of York Light Youth, whose most recent production was Cats in October 2015. Many of our performers from previous shows return, along with some new faces.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
A brand new rollicking romp of a panto!
Saturday 3 December to Saturday 10 December 2016
Governor LeTrump is determined to cast his menacing spell over the city of Paris but with the circus in town, his evil plans slowly begin to unravel. Fortune teller Celia Fate and her son Summer are spreading an air of anarchy among the citizens. Celia’s daughter Esmerelda is proving to be quite a distraction and now even Quasimodo is causing problems every time he sneaks out of the cathedral.
Will LeTrump fine the Court of Miracles? Will Esmerelda get her man? Can Quasimodo escape to save the day?
There’s only one way to find out.
With song, dance, slapstick silliness and all the trappings of a traditional family pantomime you’d be mad to miss it!
