Fall Drama Production: In The Heights

November 13th-16th & 20th-22nd

Tickets available online

"In The Heights" tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood—a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. "In The Heights" is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

Music/Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Book by Quiara Alegria Hudes
Directed by Jamie M. Miller

Appropriate for students in upper-elementary grades and above for occasional coarse language
