Horwich Amateur Theatre Society are pround to present the Engish Amateur Premiere of Lin-Manuel Miranda's award winning In The Heights.
Performances are from 17th — 20th May 2017 at 7:30 at Bolton Little Theatre, Hanover Street, Bolton.
Tickets are £10 for Wed, Thurs & Fri and £12 for Saturday.
In the Heights is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. The story is set over the course of three days, involving an ensemble cast of characters in the largely Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.
Welcome to Washington Heights, where life’s a struggle but the streets are jumping to the irresistible rhythms of love, passion, hopes and dreams. This smash hit, Tony Award winning musical is a joyously uplifting tale of young love in a community on the brink of change, set in one bustling neighbourhood where everyone knows everybody, and the breeze carries the sweet sounds of three generations of music.
This production was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards, winning four: Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography (Andy Blankenbuehler), and Best Orchestrations (Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman). It won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. It was also nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and won the Olivier award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
