West Side Story, with a live orchestra, full sets and costumes, is a multiple award-wining musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet that transplants the young lovers to the violent streets of New York City, where they are doomed by social conditions they can’t control.

The cast includes students in fifth to ninth grade from various public and private schools in the area. Playing the adults will be journalist Forrest Sawyer, winner of seven Emmy Awards; Kevin Contreras, filmmaker and parent of a cast member; Peter Umoff, parent of two cast members; and Andrew Firestone, known from the TV reality show The Bachelor.

West Side Story will be performed at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. April 30 and May 1. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for children age 14 or younger. Family packs are available for $50 for a maximum of two adults and three children.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
