The international cast of West Side Story have taken part in a photocall in London during the run of their show at Sadler’s Wells (until 22 September 2013).

A selection of casts members playing the two rival gangs – The Jets and The Sharks – posed for a photocall at London’s gritty Leake Street SE1 neighbourhood to re-create some of the show’s iconic dance moves.

This celebrated production of West Side Story is directed and choreographed by Joey McKneely using the full original Jerome Robbins choreography.

Featuring Leonard Bernstein’s iconic score, Stephen Sondheim’s genre-defining lyrics and groundbreaking choreography, West Side Side is the dance musical to end them all.

Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and full of unforgettable songs including Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty, West Side Story changed the face of musical theatre forever.

The Jets and Sharks pictures in the Photo Gallery are:

• The Sharks: Tiffany Mellard, Natonia Monét, Naomie C Walley
• The Jets: Michael Bullard, Matthew Couvillon, Beau Middlebrook, Andrew Purcell, Mitchell Woodcock
