West Side Story, a creation of Arthur Laurents (script), Leonard Bernstein (music), Stephen Sondheim (lyrics), and Jerome Robbins (choreography), was nominated for Best Musical in the 1958 Tony Awards and won at the 1958 Theatre World Awards. Inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, it follows the story of two teenage street gangs in the Upper West Side in New York City in the mid-1950s. Tony, a former member of the gang called Jets, falls in love with Maria, sister of the Puerto Rican gang, Sharks.
The Philippine production of The Sound of Music will feature 18 talented kids from Manila. Based on the memoir The Story of the Trapp Family Singers set in 1938 Austria, it follows Maria who takes a job as governess to a large family. She later falls in love with the kids' widowed father, Captain von Trapp.
