Meet the Cast of West Side Story

West Side Story

The number one requested musical from our 2019 show survey. You asked for it, you got it! 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. 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 fear, violence, and prejudice remains one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time. The score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim are widely regarded as among the best ever written.

Carolina Ballet Theatre – Raising the Barre in Greenville

For more than six centuries, ballet has graced royal courts and stages across the globe, and for 50 years, Greenville’s own Carolina Ballet Theatre has been bringing this timeless performance art to the Upstate.

From that first day in 1972 until now, CBT has been guided by the prospect of what could be. Its evolutionary, enlightened and engaging approach has ensured that this powerful performance art remains true to its origins while continuing to push the boundaries of this dynamic dance medium.

An artistic vision with hundreds of dancers, hundreds of hours of training and practicing, and countless performances have all culminated into a legacy of bringing world-class productions to the Greenville stage.

This exhibition celebrates an incredible 50-year journey that has encountered notable high points, as well as unimaginable setbacks, but still managing to raise the barre on entertainment excellence, engaged outreach, and unity through performance arts.
