The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay is sponsoring the sing-a-long movie West Side Story at the Sid Williams Theatre at 7 p.m. on Jan. 19.
This was a groundbreaking musical gem of the mid-1950’s exploring the rivalry between two neighbourhood street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The dark theme, extended dance scenes and focus on social problems marked a turning point in American musical theatre.
The lyrics to the vast array of songs in this movie are shown on the bottom of the screen. From the first note to the last, sing your heart out to Something’s Coming, Maria, America, Somewhere, Gee, Officer Krupke and so many more.
Have fun, dress to the occasion and join in the antics of this highly appraised musical film. Tickets are $25 available at the Sid Williams Theatre Box Office or online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com.
Funds raised will go to the Comox Valley Hospital Foundation.
