Vanessa wants to show her West Side.

Byline: By FARIHA KARIM

HIGH School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has revealed her dream role - playing Maria in a remake of West Side Story.

The 19-year-old Californian shot to worldwide fame as Gabriella Montez in the teen blockbuster films.

She is now due to star on the silver screen as misfit Sam in new battle-of-the-bands film Bandslam.

But she revealed her lifelong ambition is to play the lead character - famously portrayed by Natalie Wood in 1961 - in classic musical West Side Story.

She said: "I have always been a huge fan of Natalie and West Side Story is one of my favourite musicals.

"It would have to be an amazing version but I would love nothing more than to be a part of that."

Vanessa hopes Bandslam will shake off her goody-two-shoes image.

She said: "People will see me in a different light and the music is a bit more rock'n'roll."
