NPAC MainStage

West Side Story

NPAC's MainStage fall auditions for West Side Story will be held on Wednesday, August 22nd (starting at 4:30pm) at the Naples Performing Arts Center. MainStage auditions are for students in 9th-12th grade only. 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. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Please call the studio 239-597-6722 for more information.
