In The Heights
Throckmorton Youth Performers Presents
IN THE HEIGHTS
March 16-18 & March 23-25, 2018
Over the course of the Tony award-winning musical, In the Heights, we encounter the many colorful residents of Washington Heights -- a New York City neighborhood on the brink of change. Usnavi, a first generation Dominican-American corner bodega owner, and his friends and family are dealing with the pressures of rising rents and closing neighborhood businesses. As one family struggles to figure out how to pay for an Ivy League tuition for their brilliant and hard-working daughter, a young woman is trying to put a down payment on a new apartment; and Usnavi himself is trying to get back to the Dominican Republic to reconnect with his roots after the death of his parents.
This revolutionary new musical combines Latin rhythms and dance with hip-hop lyrics to tell a captivating story about what it means to chase your dreams as you cling to your roots, and to celebrate the community from which you grew.
