“In the Heights” is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (of “Hamilton” fame) and book by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story explores three days in the characters’ lives in the New York City Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights. The show opened on Broadway in 2008 and went on to win four Tony Awards and one Grammy Award.
“In the Heights” includes a vibrant hip-hop, rap, merengue and salsa flavored score, spirited dancing, and is appropriate for children. This is the first production of “In the Heights” staged by a high school in the Denver metro area. Get your tickets today!
The production is being helmed by Director Megen Gilman and Music Director Edwina Lucero, Choreographer Ricardo Changeux, Set Designer Allan Trumpler, Sound Designer Michael Cousins and Music Advisor Erin Cisney. Well-known local designer Mona Lucero is designing the costumes. Actor, director and teacher Antonio Mercado of North High’s 2004 “Zoot Suit Riots” fame is producing this remarkable show.
All professional local musicians are backing up the actors, including Denver North High School alum Kenny O of Flobots!
