Music Theatre International (MTI), the group that licenses theatre organizations to perform musicals like West Side Story, strictly forbids changes of any kind to the original book, music or story. The company's website page for West Side Story specifically notes, under the "Show Billing" tab, that the cast and crew are not allowed to add the male Sharks to "America" or switch the places of the songs "Cool" or "Gee, Officer Krupke". The company notes that the license is not giving permission to perform the movie version in any way. The performance that the school in the show presents would be considered a violation of contract in real life. See more

I wanna take you out on a date. A real, honest to God sit down date. Where you dress up like a lady and I dress up like a gentleman. Yes or no?
Why are you doing this, Cooter? Somebody put you up to this?
Jeez. Why don't you get that I'm attracted to you?
Because you're the kind of man that can have any pretty girl he pointed at and I don't look the way pretty girls look.
Well, good, 'cause I don't date girls, I just date women, beautiful women, like you.
