Win Tickets to West Side Story at the Pantages!

Chevalier's is pleased to offer our patrons a chance to win a pair of tickets to see West Side Story at the historic Pantages Theatre!

Shop at Chevalier's on Sunday December 5th, and spend just $100+ in a single transaction and you will be entered to win a pair of tickets to see West Side Story on Wednesday December 8th at 8pm!

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theatre forever. Now it's back on Broadway mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents' Broadway direction will be recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director of Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins choreography is reproduced by Tony Award-nominee Joey McKneely.

West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Boradway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway's finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as "Something's Coming," "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty," " and "Somewhere."

We are thrilled to be partnering with the Pantages Theatre to offer our patrons the chance to win tickets to such an exciting event.
