Broadway in the Park / West Side Story - August 6-10
Peppertree Park, Old Town Tustin 230 W First St, Tustin, CA 92780 Map

One of the most groundbreaking and romantic musicals ever written, West Side Story sets Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in the turbulent and passionate streets of New York’s West Side during the 1950s. Tony is a dreamer, ready to leave his street gang behind and face the future head-on; Maria is idealistic and looking to explore womanhood and the world beyond her family’s dress shop. When the two meet, their worlds stop — and cultural divides and societal expectations give way to star-crossed love. Featuring a live orchestra performing one of the most exciting scores ever written for the stage, and a story that tackles topics of prejudice, hatred, and the need for compassion between communities, this outdoor production at Tustin’s Peppertree Park will rumble in your heart long after the final note is sung.

Aug 13, 14
On September 11, 2001, four U.S. planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people in a matter of hours. Behind the staggering number of deaths are the individuals, each of whom left behind family, friends and co-workers who feel the national tragedy on a personal level.

A Tustin resident and patriot Angie Kardashian, in the aftermath of the disaster, felt
compelled to do what she could as an American. Angie sold her restaurant, moved to
New York, cooked meals at her own expense for two years to feed thousands of firefighters
in more than 100 firehouses until her money ran out. Our window display is part of her journey and a reminder to all of us "To Never forget."
