Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre will host a musical this July inspired by the world’s greatest love story.

Local drama group Re-ACT presents West Side Story, a “timeless narrative that follows the journey of star-crossed lovers that dare to dream.”

A spokeswoman says: “In an attempt to cross battle lines between two gangs, our protagonists are trapped in a bitter feud that forbids their love and threatens their future.”

“Set in the upper west side neighbourhood of NYC, this musical is poignant and powerful in presenting the tragic consequence of love, revenge and hatred in a society built on conflict.”

The show comes The Princess Theatre from 5th – 7th July. Tickets are available from the Box Office at www.princesstheatreandartscentre.co.uk or by calling 01278 784464.

They are priced at £9 for concessions and £10 for adults with a booking fee pof 50p per ticket up to £2 per booking. Performance contains flashing lights and loud bangs
