Set in New York, this Broadway musical gives Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet a modern twist as two lovers from warring street gangs find themselves caught up in a world of violence and hate.
More than 30 talented individuals from Comet country will be rehearsing for the show, directed by Scott St Martyn.
Martin Neely, who plays the part of Lieutenant Schrank, also appeared as Riff in West Side Story, at the Gordon Craig, 12 years ago.
