Children, Teens – Join us for a week of musical programming over spring break at the Southwest Branch. Today we’ll be watching and singing along to the 1961 musical drama “West Side Story.” Snacks provided.
“West Side Story” is the award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet.” The feuding families become two warring New York City gangs — the white Jets led by Riff and the Puerto Rican Sharks, led by Bernardo. Their hatred escalates to a point where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. But when Riff’s best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo’s younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything to stop their love. (IMDB)
