Urdang Academy Presents In The Heights

21 & 22 February

A view of New York's changing landscape

In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighbourhood – 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.

As part of their course, third-year graduates of Urdang Academy perform in a full-length musical. These shows are produced for performance experience and assessment, and for the students to prepare for leaving the Academy.
