We are delighted to present the Tony award-winning, revolutionary new musical from the composer of ‘Hamilton’. In The Heights, combines Latin rhythms and dance moves 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.
Spa Theatre Juniors’ will take you to a New York City neighborhood on the brink of change.
In Washington Heights, community is everything, and we see how 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.
As each of these individuals struggles to survive see how they come together as a community to mourn their losses and rejoice in their triumphs. See how the hard-working residents of Washington Heights grapple with love and lust, identity and racism, all while the prospect of a winning lottery ticket hangs in the air, potentially changing the livelihoods of the people and the community forever.
Performances will take place from 21-23rd May 2020 at Bridge House Theatre. Keep an eye out for announcements as tickets will be available soon!
