Stage 2 at White Plains Performing Arts Center Announces Summer Production
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first Tony Award Winning musical, IN THE HEIGHTS will play the WPPAC stage July 29-31. This show 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 directed by Jorge Acosta with musical direction by Katie Luekens Chan Chee and choreography by Anthony Murphy. Scenic Design by Travis George, Costume Design by Molly Seidel, and Lighting Design by JiYoung Chung. Music and Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes, conceived By Lin-Manuel Miranda.
IN THE HEIGHTS performs Friday and Saturday July 29 and 30 at 8:00 pm and Sunday July 31 at 2:00 pm at the White Plains Performing Arts Center, minutes from the White Plains Metro North Station. It is located on the third level of City Center off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains. Tickets start at $25. For tickets: visit the theatre box office Monday-Friday (11am-6pm), purchase the tickets online at wppac.com or call 914-328-1600. For Group Sales, please contact [email protected].
IN THE HEIGHTS is produced by STAGE 2, a program created by WPPAC to bridge the gap between our Conservatory and MainStage, giving college, graduate school, and community performers the opportunity to work in a Professional Regional Theatre under the guidance of professional artists. Auditions are being held June 7 and 8 and are open to ages 16 and up. More information can be found at http://wppac.com/shows/in-the-heights/
