McNary High School’s production of West Side Story will close this weekend with three final performances the Ken Collin Theater at McNary, 595 Chemawa Road N.
Ticketholders whose shows were canceled due to school closures last week are encouraged to exchange their tickets for performances this weekend. No replacement performances will be scheduled.
“We weighed all the pros and cons of adding performances and came to the decision that we have committed to this many shows and it is in the transitory nature of theatre to have the experience and then let it pass,” said director Dallas Myers.
There are still open seats and $8 tickets are available at the door. Curtain times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 27 and 28. A 1 p.m. matinee is scheduled Saturday.
West Side Story is an update of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet pitting two star-crossed lovers, Tony (Jesus Gomez) and Maria (Jill Jungwirth), against rival gangs that threaten to tear them apart.
