As a centrepiece of our 120th birthday celebrations, Birmingham Hippodrome is proud to present our first home-grown youth production for the main stage, West Side Story.

This fresh and dynamic reimagining of one of the most iconic musicals of all time, brings together an incredible cast of young and emerging performers from across the region – selected from over 1,000 that auditioned – working with a professional creative team, to bring this timeless story to life.

In this tale of teenage love, Tony and Maria find themselves caught between feuding communities, the ‘American’ Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks, as Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet takes to the streets and is transported to New York City.

Featuring the classic songs TonightI Feel PrettyAmerica and many more.
