By Andrew Gans

The McCallum Theatre will present a concert production of West Side Story March 9 at 8 PM, March 10 at 2 PM and 8 PM, and March 11 at 2 PM and 7 PM in Palm Desert, California.

Produced and directed by Chad Hilligus, the concerts will feature a 40-piece orchestra conducted by Grammy winner Richard Kaufman.

As previously announced, Ali Ewoldt, who currently stars as Christine in Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera, will play Maria alongside Matthew Hydzik as Tony and Natalie Cortez as Anita, both of whom appeared in the 2009 Broadway revival of West Side Story.

They will be joined by John Arthur Greene as Riff, Mikey Winslow as Action, Christopher Rice as Baby John, Alex Ringler as Diesel, Ryan Ghysels as A-Rab, and Clay Thomson as Snowboy. German Alexander will lead the Sharks as Bernardo with Dean Andre De Luna as Chino, Maya Post as Rosalia, Tanairi Sade Vazquez as Consuela, Alexandra Blake Redelico as Francisca, and Adrian Arrieta as Pepe.

This special presentation is part of the McCallum’s Leonard Bernstein Centennial Celebration. The 1957 classic has lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Arthur Laurents.
