Sing along to West Side Story for a good cause

The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay is presenting the sing-along movie West Side Story Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers and places them in the vibrant battleground of New York City’s west side in the 1950s. In the midst of deep-seated rivalry between two gangs, romance blooms between Tony and Maria.

Soaring, sophisticated and diverse melodies, energetic and athletic dancing, and its remarkable salient social message makes West Side Story one of American musicals’ most loved treasures. Funds raised go to the Comox Valley Hospital Foundation and Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program.

Sing to Something’s Coming, Jet Song, Maria, One Hand, One Heart and so many more. Lyrics on the bottom of the screen make songs from the first note to the last pure joy for a truly fun-filled evening.

Tickets are on sale at the Sid Williams Box Office or Square 1 Travel.
